Sumac plants thrive in various temperate and subtropical regions scattered across the world. They are native to many places in North America, Africa, and Asia.
They are beautiful plants that begin with large clusters of flowers in the spring, which transform into beautiful, suitable red foliage come fall time. These bright red clusters of berries blossom in the fall and last until the winter months.
Sumac comes in a variety of types
Smooth sumac (Rhus glabra) and staghorn sumac (R. typhina) are popular landscaping plants. They provide excellent shelter and food for wildlife like small birds and mammals.
Sumac is a versatile plant that thrives in any well-drained soil. Its bright red color (and, in some cases, orange or yellow depending on the plant sub-type) makes it a popular choice for gardeners and landscapers. Its bright, beautiful array of colors makes it a valuable addition to any group of landscaping plants. Sumac plants grow more than 8-12 feet at maturity (sometimes growing as long as 15 feet).
Among the uses of the fruit from sumac trees are beverages and spices. Sumac can also be used for dyes, and at one point, sumac was used for medicinal purposes as well.
Sumac plants are known for their beautiful colors, valuable fruits, and hospitality to wildlife
