We bought this Tiger Sumac a few years back and it has a very interesting growth pattern. Found out this thing likes to put shoots out all over the place which we have had to dig out and replant. Gave one or two to friends. I found another use for this as well which you'll see in the picture. I placed some potted cucumber underneath it and let it grow up the branches. It worked pretty well.
