    Fruit of sumac: fun huh? AND you can make a healthy natural tea! A common, and native species, easy to grow.

    Fine, lacy foliage plant family- they can tend to colonize, which can be a good thing in a spot where you can let them run. Add in the rich fall colors of sumac glabra, shining sumac, staghorn sumacs. (Rhus) See maxlandscape.com for more info. The lemonade is delicious- strained!
