Rhus aromatica

Fragrant Sumac

This sumac is a fine textured deciduous shrub with leaves remarkably like poison oak but harmless, somewhat blue green, and aromatic.  Female plants produce clusters of hairy red fruit persistent into winter. Can be used for massing on banks and slopes in light shade or sun.  Native to scattered localities over much of eastern U.S.  Highly variable as to size.  Several low-growing varieties have been named.  A good plant for banks and slopes with sun or light shade.
