Rhus shrubs

Rhus shrubsRhus are lovely shrubs, growing in any ordinary soil. The young shoots of Rhus Cotinus are clothed with round leaves which change to bright crimson and orange, surmounted with fluffy pink seed-vessels, while Rhus Glabra Laciniata resembles a tree fern. They may be propagated either by layers or cuttings. Their height differs eight to ten feet.
