Stag-horn Tree

Sapindales_-_Rhus_typhina_4

 

 

 

 Rhus or Sumac(h); Stag-Horn Tree:

 

This tree is quite a nice looking tree with interesting ‘flowers’ however it’s party trick is to send roots underground and then pop up elsewhere in the garden.

 

Once it establishes itself it can be hard to dig out. It also is a low round shaped tree so it uses up quite a lot of garden space.

 

We haven’t used it in any of our small garden designs – but we do use lots of other plants that are much better (we think).

Why don’t you take a look
