Staghorn Sumac is a deciduous shrub or small tree native to eastern North America. It can grow 15-25 feet tall and is characterized by a rounded crown and umbrella-shaped branches. The plant is named for its branches, which resemble the velvet-covered antlers of a young stag. Staghorn Sumac features large, compound leaves that are oblong and pinnately lobed. In late spring, it produces dense clusters of small, greenish-yellow flowers. By autumn, the leaves transform into bright yellow, orange, and red hues, and the branches display fuzzy, raspberry-like fruits.

This versatile plant thrives in full to partial sun and prefers moist, well-drained soil but is adaptable to a variety of conditions, including dry spells. It tolerates both cold and hot temperatures, making it suitable for growth in USDA hardiness zones 4-8.
