Looking for a hardy, easy-to-identify shrub that will attract wildlife and prosper in poor soil? Look no further than Rhus glabra, also known as Smooth Sumac. This deciduous plant, native to North America, features compound leaves with up to 31 leaflets that turn scarlet, orange, and purple in the fall. Its greenish flowers and fuzzy red berries also make it a visual standout. Plus, the fruit can be harvested to make a refreshing lemonade-like drink when soaked in hot or cold water. Rhus glabra is also a valuable resource for natural dye production, and its extensive root system makes it a great choice for stabilizing soil and creating shelter screens. It can even be used to establish woodlands in sunny locations. Hardy to zone 2, Rhus glabra is a tough and versatile shrub that will add visual interest to any landscape.
