Tiger Eyes®

The beautiful amber glow of a tiger’s eye!

An exceptional golden-leafed form of cut leaf staghorn, Tiger Eyes® was discovered by Steve Jorgensen of Bailey Nurseries.

New growth in a lively chartreuse green that changes quickly to yellow. Both shades contrast beautifully with the rosy-pink leaf stems for a truly eye-catching effect.

Magnificent in summer, Tiger Eyes® becomes even more dramatic in the autumn with striking shades of yellow, orange, and intense scarlet.

This lovely sumac would be a standout in any landscape design, with branches that angle upward as the deeply cut leaflets drape elegantly downward.

A very hardy shrub, it tolerates a wide range of soils as well as urban conditions and is adaptable to both poorly drained soils and very dry soil.

It doesn’t sucker profusely and does not have a heavy seed set.

It’s easy to see why this unique sumac was voted the 2007 Gold Medal Plant Award winner.

Here are three great reasons to grow Tiger Eyes®:

  1. Lively chartreuse green new growth that changes quickly to yellow.
  2. Color is even more dramatic in the autumn, with shades of yellow, orange, and intense scarlet.
  3. Delicate look with leaflets that drape downward from upward angled stems.
