    Hello there!

    Saw this very striking tree on a trip to the US recently. Can anyone tell me what it is?
    Thanks so much in advance. :bye:

    Hi Nic. It looks like a Sumach or Stag’s Horn. Rhus being the latin name.

    Rhus typhina and it is North American.

    Haha Cilla, you beat me to it. I think it’s Sumac. Children had a small one growing in their old garden…south of France.

    lovely leaves and ?sort of purple type flower thing – sister went into raptures over it and planted one in her garden several years ago only to find it shot up ?suckers or shoots all over the garden so it went the way things like that have to go

    Must be the only rampant invader i have failed to plant in the front garden. Thanks for the warning Jenny, but it is handsome.

    Despite it’s rampant nature I’d still have one in the garden, you can’t beat it’s autumn colour Nic and the ‘stag horn’ structure of the branches in winter along with the red velveteen fruits. just keep on top of the suckers ;-)
