Smooth Sumac

Plant Type: Native - Midwest

Sumacs are well known for their excellent color in autumn, when the long compound leaves turn bright orange and red. Plants produce yellow flower clusters that later form large bright red berry clusters. The fruits persist long into winter, and many birds and other wildlife rely on them for a food source. Colony-forming, Smooth sumac is the only shrub or tree species native to all 48 contiguous U.S. states. Larval host to the Hairstreak Butterfly.
