Skunkbush Sumac (Rhus trilobata)

With smaller flowers and leaves than Rhus aromatica, this more upright species is also great for massing in larger spaces. Grows well in all soil types. Extremely drought tolerant. Yellow flowers in spring are followed by red fruit. Fall foliage rounds out this plant’s three-season interest.
