List of files and visuals associated with this text.

Sumacs are among the most adaptable shrubs but may be regarded as weeds. They grow rapidly, tolerate most exposures and poor soil but are short-lived. Sumac grows 30 feet tall and spreads up to 25 feet. The main ornamental feature is bright red fall color. Keep suckers controlled to keep the plant within its allotted space. The red fruits are produced in terminal panicles.

Two cultivars are listed: 'dissecta'--cut leaflets; 'laciniata'--cut-leaved.
