Description

Winged Sumac (Rhus copallinum) is a large deciduous shrub (sometimes considered a small tree) that grows naturally on dry hillsides, open woods, prairies, rocky slopes, and sandy woodlands. The attractive, dark green foliage turns a brilliant orange-red in the fall. This shrub has high wildlife value. The tiny greenish-yellow flowers that bloom on large (4-8″) showy panicles provide nectar for native butterflies and bees. The red fruit clusters that appear in the fall persist into the winter and provide food for birds and small mammals. It also provides cover and habitat for birds and other wildlife. Winged Sumac is a host plant for the Red-Banded Hairstreak (shown above). The berry-like fruits are also edible and can be used to make a lemonade-like drink.
