Chartreuse spring foliage matures into yellow leaf color above fuzzy rosy-pink stems in this form of Cutleaf Staghorn Sumac. In autumn the show gets even brighter as the leaves become a variegated yellow, orange and scarlet. The branches angle upward and the deeply cut leaflets drape downward creating a rather oriental look. An easy to grow accent plant with only one caution: protect the stems from buck deer damage.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:
These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.
About sizes of our plants:
Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
