Rhus typhina Tiger Eyes® ('Bailtiger')

Cut-Leaf Staghorn Sumac, Stag's Horn Sumac Tiger Eyes®, Sumac Tiger Eyes®, Rhus typhina 'Bailtiger' PP16185


Considered to be a superior landscape plant to the species, thanks to its compact size, the quality of its golden foliage and its minimal suckering habit, award-winning Rhus Tiphina Tiger Eyes® is a real standout! Changing with every season, the cut-leaf foliage of this deciduous, suckering shrub emerges chartreuse in spring, matures to bright yellow in the summer and eventually acquires striking orange and scarlet tones in fall. The leaves contrast extremely well with the purplish branches and stems. Cone-shaped panicles of green-yellow flowers bloom in early summer, followed on female plants by dark red fruit in fall. Rhus Tiphina Tiger Eyes® is one of the most beautiful shrubs and is well displayed as an ornamental in many gardens.
