Choose these easy starter packs to create the hedge your landscape has been missing! For a privacy hedge that provides seclusion, plant close row that grows together to create a solid continuous band of coverage, use 3-4 shrubs for every 10-foot-long hedge, plant in a straight row or a zig-zag about 2 ½ feet on center (measuring from the center of one shrub to the center of the next). Or, create a more informally spaced hedge by extending your spacing. Form an allée around a BBQ or section off a seating area from the rest of the yard and entertain in style! Group Sumac in clusters 3-6 feet apart for naturalized clumps that will spread to fill in an entire area, readily forming thickets that are perfect havens for wildlife and songbirds!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Tiger Eyes Cutleaf Staghorn Sumac has no significant pest or disease issues, and deer usually won’t bother this shrub unless desperate. This plant is very adaptable to most soils that are well-drained and they appreciate a layer of mulch for insulation and moisture retention. While it's a young plant, you'll need to provide moderate water to establish, in a location where it can bask in full sun or partial shade. Once its roots are established in your native soil, the plant becomes very tolerant of dry or wet soils. This is a set it and forget it plant. It even thrives in clay soils!

The only task you'll need to do is pruning. Prune this non-aggressive Sumac in early spring. You can even cut back the plants right to the ground. This allows new shoots to develop from the roots. This refreshes the plant. It will respond quickly reaching 3-4 feet in the very first season after being cut off. If you are maintaining your Tiger Eyes as a colony, you can keep it fresh and vigorous with great color if you remove 1/3 of the largest, oldest branches to the ground in early spring. You'll do this each year for 3 years. This is called Renewal Pruning and it gives you a steady supply of young, full shoots.
