RHUS GLABRA “CISMONTANA”
Rocky Mountain Sumac
This is a beautiful hardy deciduous shrub native to the Rocky Mountains. It grows 8’ to 10’ and spreading, often used to create a thicket. Dark green leaves turn brilliant scarlet in fall. Yellow-green flowers followed by bright red berries that birds love. Excellent for adding a lush tropical look to a xeric landscape, will grow in waste areas where most plants cannot. Used in many cities where a low water requirement exists. THIS IS NOT THE PLANT KNOWN AS POISON SUMAC!
