Growing Rhus (Sumac)

To obtain the best foliage color in autumn, plant Rhus in full sun. Sumac requires a well-drained soil, but will adapt to a variety of soil types. It will tolerate poor soil and clay and can even tolerate drought once established. Cut stems back hard to the ground in late winter to rejuvenate.
