SHINING SUMAC Rhus copallinum This large shrub or small tree loves a sunny spot and tolerates rocky poor soils. It has red purple berries and brilliant red leaves in fall. Similar in appearance to the closely related staghorn sumac, but without fuzzy branches and slightly smaller.
In addition to bareroot seedlings, Rhus copallinum var latifolia Prairie Flame™ is also available as a #3 container.
