Laceleaf Staghorn Sumac - Knowledgebase Question

Vancouver, WA
Question by Tomrsgee
February 6, 2006
I recently bought a Laceleaf Staghorn Sumac (Rhus typinia 'Laciniata'(R t 'Dissecta'), still in the pot. My gardening book states that the females plants have clusters of red flowers in the fall. How do I determine male and female? Is there any information to look for on the Plant Indentification Tag that would tell me? Would it be better to plant two Sumacs?
Thank you. Colleen Geordan

Monrovia supplies only cutting grown Staghorn Sumacs so if yours is a Monrovia product, you'll have a female. If these plants are grown from seed, you may get either male or female, but with cutting grown plants you'll be assured of getting the flowering female.
