Rhus typhina 'Dissecta' (Cut-Leaf Staghorn Sumac)

Cut-Leaf Staghorn Sumac, Rhus hirta 'Laciniata', Rhus typhina f. laciniata, Rhus typhina 'Laciniata'


Award-winning Rhus Tiphina 'Dissecta' is an open, spreading, deciduous shrub or small tree with nice ornamental features. Its foliage of large, deeply dissected, fern-like, bright green leaves, 2 ft. long (60 cm), warms up to brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow in fall. Its strong architectural form and elegant silhouette are revealed in winter, after the leaves are gone. Cone-shaped panicles of green-yellow flowers bloom in midsummer, followed on female plants by conspicuous crimson fruit in fall. Attractive to wildlife, they gradually turn dark red as they persist through much of the winter. Rhus Tiphina 'Dissecta' is a suckering shrub that will form thickets via self-seeding and root suckering and has the potential to become a nuisance.

  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
  • Grows up to 9-15 ft. tall (270-450 cm) and 15-20 ft. wide (450-600 cm).
  • A full sun or part shade lover, this plant is easily grown in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Fall color will be best in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soils provided they enjoy good drainage. Remove suckers by digging out all roots.
  • Perfect for landscape areas with poor soils or for naturalizing in wild areas. Too aggressive for shrub borders.
  • Drought and dry soil tolerant, it is also rabbit resistant.
  • No serious insect or disease problems. May be affected by leaf spots, rusts, powdery mildew, blister and cankers
