Tiger Eyes is a beautiful golden-leafed form of cutleaf staghorn sumac. New growth is a lively chartreuse green, quickly changing to yellow, both colors contrasting nicely with the rosy-pink leaf stems. The branches angle upward while the deeply cut leaflets drape downward. As magnificent as the summer colors are, the dramatic effect of yellow, orange and intense scarlet in autumn are unparalleled. Tolerates a wide range of soils as well as urban conditions, and is adaptable to both poorly drained soils and very dry soil. Doesn't sucker profusely and does not have heavy seed set.
