Staghorn Sumac Seedlings
Native to the Eastern United States, the Staghorn Sumac will add a unique aspect to the landscape. With their quizzical fuzzy petals, they stand out with a look of a stag's new horn growth. Hence the name "Staghorn Sumac." If you want to add extra warm colors to your garden in the fall, this is the plant for you. A great beginner plant, as it can withstand most extremes. The French and Germans have been admiring this garden plant for over 500 years as the "vinegar tree." If you would like to crop or shape this plant, many gardeners will orient the leaves to form like a small palm tree. Enjoy this fantastic and traditional garden plant.
Staghorn Sumac seedlings are perfect for garden areas and to add to lawns. They prefer to be in the regions that offer medium moist soils and are well drained. They provide gorgeous beauty as they produce love oval-shaped leaves and blooms that appear as horns. During the fall months, the leaves turn to orange, yellow and a lovely purple color. This tree blooms typically during the spring months of the year.
