We've had too much rain and now the leaves on my Tiger Eyes Sumac are wilting. What can I do?

Like most all sumacs, Tiger Eyes thrives on neglect.

If you give Tiger Eyes too much water and the leaves will turn brown and drop off. You could just leave it be and see what spring brings. However, in addition to the heavy rain, I wonder if the ground has poor drainage. If you think that’s a problem, digging it up and reworking the soil would be a good idea. And, fall is a good time to do it.

Thanks for writing!
