Hi.. Can anyone help with the name if the tree in the photo, we are moving house & would like to buy one for the new garden
Some kind of sumac (rhus)
Thanks for that, do you think we could take a cutting from it?
I know that cultivars in the US are sometimes produced from cuttings, but unless you have expertise it might not be easy.
Stop mowing the lawn and there should pop up lots of rootshoots. Just dig one of them up. Or buy a new tree, they are pretty common as a garden tree even in europe. I guess it's a rhus typhina.
Rhus typhina aka Stag's Horn Sumac - been grown in the British Isles since 1620s - very common and easily obtained. And yes, if you don't mow around it for a while you may well get suckers. You might look into the cultivar 'Laciniata' which is even more ornamental.
Thanks for all your help and suggestions. Fantastic
They can get a decent size to them as far as how tall they get. They are weedy trees here, but not too bad. Not sure on width, the one near me gets pruned as to not hang over the driveway.
