Description

The Shining Sumac (Rhus copallinum) also known as the Flameleaf Sumac and the Winged Sumac, is a considerable shrub that is also classified as a tree.

It can grow up to a height of 35 feet when it reaches growth maturity. They are a native tree to North America, growing in places such as Chicago and all over Illinois. It has very dark green leaves until fall, where its leaves turn into a reddish purple color. Female Shining Sumacs produce yellowish green flowers that bloom into small, red hairy fruits in the fall months. These fruits attract wildlife that feeds off them. They usually grow with multiple trunks, but it can be trained to grow with just a single trunk, making them perfect for growing in areas like parking lots and apartment complexes.
