Winged Sumac

WingedsumacThe winged sumac is a tall suckering plant with insect attracting flowers in the spring and red foliage in the fall.  It will grow to 15 feet tall and may need to have extra root suckers pulled up when they grow away from the parent plant.  I like to make tea out of the berries in the fall.  These are coated with malic acid which is what you find in unripe apples.  Tastes like pink lemonade.   Use this to create a thicket to block out unwanted views.
