Description Reviews

Dwarf Sumac trees, also known as Rhus copallinum, are small deciduous shrubs belonging to the Anacardiaceae family. They 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's Growth

The trees typically grow up to 4 to 6 feet tall, making them ideal for small gardens or border plantings. They have a spreading growth habit, rounded shape, and delicate texture. The trees' leaves 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 Attractive Flowers

The trees are also known for their attractive flowers and fruit. In late spring and early summer, the flowers are small and greenish-yellow. These flowers 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 tree an excellent choice for attracting wildlife to your garden.

Dwarf Sumac Is Relatively Low Maintenance

One of the trees' unique features is their ability to thrive in a wide range of soil types, including poor, dry, or sandy soils. Once established, they are relatively low maintenance. The trees can be pruned in early Spring 2024 to maintain their shape and remove dead or damaged wood.

Dwarf Sumac's Benefits

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.

late arrival in Iowa

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.
