The Gro-Low Sumac is a selected form of an American native shrub, fragrant sumac. It makes an excellent ground-cover in areas ranging from full sun to light full shade, and everything in between. It grows in all zones, from 3 to 9, and this tough plant creates a carpet of branches and leaves less than 2 feet tall, but over 6 feet wide. It is fast growing, and only takes two or three seasons to fill in and reach a mature size. It has leaves in clusters of three, and the twigs and leaves have a resinous, lemony scent. They turn rich purple-red in fall, highlighted by orange and yellow, making a lovely show late in the season. Clusters of yellow flowers decorate the branches in spring, and the rich-green glossy leaves look great all spring and summer long.

  • Beautiful ground-cover deciduous shrub
  • Deep green and glossy foliage
  • Dramatic fall colors of purple-red, orange and yellow
  • bright yellow flower clusters in spring
  • Easily grown in every garden

Plant the Gro-Low Sumac in ordinary soil. It will grow in almost any soil, including urban gardens, but it does not grow so well in wet clay, or badly drained areas. It needs no particular care, and once established it is drought resistant, and chokes out weed growth. It has no significant pests or diseases and it can be trimmed as needed to keep it very neat, or you can leave it to grow naturally for wild and native gardens.
