Rhus glabra - Smooth Sumac

Anacardiaceae

Location: Montane

Description: Stunning fall color marks this non smelly member of the Sumac clan. As you can see from the photos, there is great winter interest too. This species can vary in height quite a bit. I've seen specimens well over 8' tall and some growing along the highway that were under 1' and crawling.
