Description

Fragrant Sumac ‘Gro-Low’ (Rhus aromatica) is a deciduous, dense, low-growing shrub that only grows 1.5-2′ tall but can spread up to 8′ wide. It grows naturally in open woods, glades, and thickets. Its most popular ornamental feature is its attractive fall color; the leaves turn a vibrant range of orange-red-purple. Fragrant Sumac ‘Gro-Low’ has tiny yellow flowers (female) that bloom in early spring and are followed by hairy red fruit that persists into the winter. The fruit provides food for birds and other wildlife. Fragrant Sumac is a larval host to the Red-Banded Hairstreak (pictured above), among others.

*Note: Our selection of Fragrant Sumac ‘Gro-Low’ is a mixed lot of male and female plants. We cannot guarantee which you will receive.
