The North American stag's horn sumach, grown in gardens for over 350 years, is spectacular in autumn when its foliage turns fiery orange, gold, scarlet or purple The effect is greater when set against the dense cones of red fruit borne by female plants. It is prone to producing suckers but these can be mown off in lawns, or plants may be grown in large tubs. When dug up rooted suckers are an easy way to propagate new plants.
