Botanical Name: Rhus aromatica 'Gro-Low'
A low growing and compact shrub with interesting foliage turning brilliant colors in fall and bright yellow flowers in spring; makes an excellent groundcover as it tends to sucker, filling in areas quickly, does well in shade
Gro-Low Fragrant Sumac will grow to be about 24 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 7 feet. It has a low canopy. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 25 years.
This shrub performs well in both full sun and full shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under typical garden conditions. It is not particular as to soil type, but has a definite preference for acidic soils, and is subject to chlorosis (yellowing) of the leaves in alkaline soils. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in both summer and winter to conserve soil moisture and protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This is a selection of a native North American species.
