OTHER: The Flameleaf Sumac is native to North America. It is named for its large leaves that turn flame red in fall. The summer blooms are large clusters of yellow flowers that turn to very showy fall fruit. The drupes of ornamental of dark red berries measure 8” long. The plants are dioecious, so both male & female plants are needed for pollination. Sumac trees provide cover for birds & other wildlife that will very much enjoy eating the berries.
This Dwarf Sumac is very popular because it is so lovely & easy to get along with. They are great for containers, & are very tolerant of pollution making them a beloved choice for street trees & are used in medians & along highways. This Sumac is very tolerant of many conditions including drought or poor drainage, & soil that is sandy, heavy clay, rocky, or shallow. For these reasons they are also great for erosion control. They are deer & rabbit resistant too!

I ordered seeds for a West Texas range restoration project. I ordered the seeds based on a simple search, and when the seeds arrived, I realized that they would not survive in arid West Texas. I ordered using the search terms ‘ flame leafed sumac’, which is Rhus lanceolata; the seeds I got were from Rhus copellina, a wetland species. My bad. I can use these here in Austin, but the range restoration project will have to wait.

I received a bit more then the listing. I have 3 seeds that sprouted out of 20 that I tried in a seed starter kit. I knicked the outer shell and thought I did things correct. However this is my first time ever trying seeds. Little bummed I didn’t get more sprouts but I can’t blame the seeds. It’s probably user error. I will plant the rest directly in the ground this fall.
