Rhus aromatica

Common name: Fragrant Sumac

Native plant

The “fragrant” in fragrant sumac refers to the odor that is released from crushing the stems or leaves, or standing next to it. Whether or not that odor is a pleasant one could be debated! Does best on warm, dry sites with lots of sun, but it is surprisingly adaptable to light shade. Part of the Black Oak Savanna complex. Fall color is an excellent reddish-orange with bright red fruit. A great companion plant for upright or vertical plants because of its layering habit.  For this reason, it is also a great habitat providing plant.
