Is there anything more dazzling than a Rhus typhina in full flame at this time of year?
This wonderful example in our village never fails to stop passers by.
I've heard it's not well-behaved as it self seeds and suckers freely. So good to choose your spot, by paving for example, where it cannot spread so easily; and remove any saplings that appear. It's also toxic if eaten and can aggravate skin conditions.
But those issues apart, it'll grow easily in most soils and aspects with full sun. And come the darker days of October, it'll do its brilliant burning thing.
I love it.
