Sumacs are native to Oklahoma and these selections have unique characteristics. Tiger
Eyes® is bright lime green to yellow all summer, turning brilliant bronzy red in fall.
Tiger Eyes® can grow 6 to 7 feet high. Laciniata or laceleaf sumac has deeply divided
leaflets that create a fine-textured, lacey appearance and turn shades of red, orange
and yellow in fall. This cultivar can grow 10 to 15 feet tall. As with any other sumac
they spread by suckers forming thickets. Fruit form in pyramidal clusters and are
hairy red berry-like drupes that persist into winter providing interest and food for
wildlife. Flowers that bloom in spring attract bees and butterflies. These selections
of sumac are all great for naturalized areas and erosion control.
