Drought Tolerant Colorful Groundcover
The Gro-Low Sumac, Rhus aromatica 'Gro-Low', is a selection of Fragrant Sumac grown for its very low, wide-spreading habit. This low-growing, spreading perennial plant is a woody ground cover.
On female plants, Gro-Low produces clusters of hairy red fruit in late summer and early autumn. Autumn color varies from orange and scarlet to a stunning reddish purple.
The foliage is dense, glossy, and aromatic and is great for mass planting and bank control. Xeriscape plant. This fragrant sumac performs best in a moist, moderately fertile, well-drained soil. It thrives in acid soils, but tolerates alkaline soils too.
Gro-Low prefers full sun but tolerates light shade; full sun is preferable to obtain best autumn color. The outstanding foliage in autumn is appreciated in many ornamental gardens. This sumac would look great as a central focus in your front yard!
