Common Name: Sumac

This genus of plants are widely used on hillsides for erosion control or where dry conditions occur. Many people know Sumac for its spectacular fall display of red-orange foliage but also for its tough and hardy nature. Very drought tolerant, they are considered to be fire-resistant plants for use in regions threatened by frequent wildfires.
