PRAIRIE FLAME SHINING SUMAC
Prairie Flame is a semi-dwarf, male cultivar of the Illinois native, Shining Sumac. Glossy, deep green, compound leaves turn bright, fire engine red in the fall. Clusters of small, yellow flowers bloom in the summer, and do not produce fruit. Prairie Flame does best in poor, dry, well drained soils, and cannot tolerate wet sites. Great for a naturalistic border, and a good native substitute for Burning Bush. This is an introduction from Chicagoland Grows.
