Smooth sumac is a Wisconsin native shrub. It’s a vigorous, colonizing shrub with great value to wildlife, and it will thrive in exposed and challenging sites such as roadway embankments where few other plants would survive. Perhaps not for the more refined garden palate, this is a coarse but beautiful plant that is ready to tackle the toughest environments thrown at it. May also be known as Scarlet Sumac.
