Plant Type: Deciduous Shrubs

Tiger Eyes is a beautiful golden-leafed form of Cutleaf Staghorn Sumac. An attractive, upright, spreading plant. New growth is a lively chartreuse green, quickly changing to yellow, both colors contrasting nicely with the rosy-pink leaf stems. The branches angle upward while the deeply cut leaflets drape downward, giving it a rather oriental look. As magnificent as the summer colors are, the dramatic effect of yellow, orange and intense scarlet in autumn are unparalleled.
