    Rhus Typhinus - stag horn sumach.  There is a prettier form with dissected leaves.  Both sucker when happy but both forms give glorious autumn colour.

    There's a beauty near me Obelixx. It's been looking splendid for a while  image

    The biggest issue with them is suckering, so if it's yours James - be careful if you decide to prune it back!

    And somewhere on the hill
    Inside the past we hear the bells
    Catching only parts of thoughts
    And fragments of ourselves
    Till we begin

    Absolutely Suckers!! I know someone who wanted me to plant one in her front garden I told her she was mad. She did it anyway its only in it's 2nd year so none yet so I don't think she believes me. I have told her to wait.

    I really want one of these but am worried about the suckers. 

  • The suckers can appear many feet/metres from the original plant.
