Flameleaf Sumac Characteristics
Flameleaf Sumac are multistemmed shrubs with attractive fall color and large yellow flower panicles. They can spread aggressively despite being dioecious, meaning that individual plants are either male or female. In order for propagation to occur, female plants must be pollinated by a nearby male plant. Pollinated female flowers produce berries that are attractive to wildlife.
There are few serious disease or insect issues that plague Flameleaf Sumac. While leaf spot, rusts, scale, and mites are possible, they are rarely fatal.
