How to Plant Staghorn Sumac

    • 1). Select a spot to plant staghorn sumac in full sun with well-drained soil. Sumac grows well on less-than-fertile, acidic soil and is a good choice for areas where many plants will not grow. It tolerates moist soil, as well, as long as it is well-drained.

    • 2). Dig a hole with the garden shovel that is twice as large as the root ball of the sumac transplant. Do not improve the soil by adding organic matter or fertilizer.

    • 3). Set the rootball into the hole and fan out the roots slightly so they are not crossing or tangled. Situate it in the hole so it is growing at the same level as it was growing before transplanting. This is usually evident by a slight change in the color of the bark on the trunk at ground level. If necessary, remove the root ball from the hole and add or subtract soil as needed.

    • 4). Backfill the hole with soil, pressing it down with your foot as you go. Ensure the sumac is planted upright and not leaning in any direction.

    • 5). Water the newly planted sumac with a hose or hand-watering can. Although they are drought-tolerant, keep your sumac well-watered during its first year of growth in your landscape to ensure it becomes well-established.
