This plant is native to the eastern U.S., and can range from a large shrub to a small tree. The branches are covered in brown hairs, resembling a deer's velvet antlers, which inspired the name "staghorn". The leaves are divided and deep green, transforming into vibrant yellow-orange or red in the fall. It blooms in early summer with small greenish flowers in clusters of 4-8 inches, followed by dense groups of small, medicinal crimson fruits. These fruits remain on the plant throughout winter and serve as a valuable food source for birds.

They tend to produce suckers, which can be a problem in small gardens. They grow well in large containers.
