Tiger Eyes Sumac
Tiger Eyes Sumac is a great variation of the common sumac. It features striking yellow foliage that is a stunning addition to the landscape. New leaves emerge chartruese-green, and change to a brilliant golden yellow as they mature. Foliage may take on scarlet, orange coloring in the fall. There are very small, insignificant yellow-green flowers early in the summer. Makes a wonderful dense shrub or hedge. Will colonize by suckers, but is not generally aggressive as are others of the species. Common name: staghorn sumac. Great as a hedge or accent plant.

Tiger Eyes is a whole plant mutation of R. typhina ‘Laciniata’ that was discovered in July of 1985. Can be used on slopes to control erosion.
