Searching Genus for Rhus

RHUS(SUMAC)Family: ANACARDIACEAE
A genus of over 200 aromatic trees and shrubs native to North America, eastern Asia, Australia and South Africa.

RHUS aromatica New Spring3031
Fragrant Sumac.5 to 1.5m  Zone: 3
Native to eastern and central North America. Fragrant Sumac lives up to its common name and rubbing the leaves or stems produces a lovely, aromatic pungency. And the small plant, although twisting and sprawling, is very appealing; a myriad of tiny yellow early spring flowers are followed by slightly-serrated leaves, then red berries and finally the brilliance of yellow and red fall leaves. It can grow in a wide variety of conditions and tolerates sites with high moisture fluctuations from saturation or flooding in winter and spring to extremely dry and barren, almost desert conditions in summer. It has a great ability to cling to slopes, serving to stabilize the soil with its shallow fibrous root system. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: Seed coat is very hard and impermeable and requires puncturing. Then cold treatment required.

RHUS copallinaJuly3034
Mountain, Dwarf or Shining Sumac2-4m  Zone: 4
Native to eastern North America, and very rare in Canada, this is an outstanding species and a personal favorite, with glossy dark green, pinnately-compound foliage turning the showiest of all sumacs in autumn--utterly brilliant maroon and red. Pyramidal panicles of greenish-yellow flowers in late summer are followed by small red drupes. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: After some extensive research and testing; we have finally determined that the best way to germinate this species is by doing a boiling-water overnight soak. Germination then occurs within 2 weeks at warm.
