The Gorgeous Dwarf Sumac
Dwarf Sumac trees, also known as Rhus copallinum, are small deciduous shrub that belongs to the Anacardiaceae family. These trees are native to the eastern United States and can be found from Florida to New England. They grow in various habitats, including woodlands, rocky slopes, and open fields.
Dwarf Sumac trees typically grow up to 4 to 6 feet tall, making them an ideal choice for small gardens or border plantings. They have a spreading growth habit, rounded shape, and delicate texture. The leaves of Dwarf Sumac trees are dark green and glossy, turning bright red or orange in the Fall (End of October), adding a beautiful display of color to any landscape.
Dwarf Sumac trees are also known for their attractive flowers and fruit. The flowers are small and greenish-yellow in late Spring 2024 and early summer. These flowers then give way to small, bright red fruit clusters that ripen in late summer and persist throughout Fall (End of October). These berries are a favorite food source for birds, making the Dwarf Sumac tree an excellent choice for attracting wildlife to your garden.
Dwarf Sumac Features
One of the unique features of Dwarf Sumac trees is their ability to thrive in a wide range of soil types, including poor, dry, or sandy soils. They are relatively low maintenance once established. Dwarf Sumac trees can be pruned in early Spring 2024 to maintain their shape and remove dead or damaged wood.
Dwarf Sumac trees are an excellent choice for gardeners looking for a small, colorful, low-maintenance landscape shrub. With their stunning Fall (End of October) foliage, attractive flowers, and berries that attract wildlife, they will surely be a standout addition to any garden.

The trees arrived the day after Thanksgiving and were in excellent condition. However, in a normal year the ground would have been frozen and impossible to dig. As it were, I managed to dig through a little frost and plant.
Fortunately we received a few days of above freezing temps and I think they may survive..
These trees were ordered in mid-October and I must question the late shipping for our northern location.
Took too long to ship & in NE we had ground freezing while the delivery took place. I cannot plant while ground is frozen; new trees won’t take water if the ground is frozen. They prevented me from planting in autumn entirely, so now I either figure out a way to store these til spring or they’re just trash.
