Nothing screams "fall color" like the Sumacs.
Staghorn Sumac, Rhus typhina is easy enough to identify- even for a novice weedpicker. Look for those giant, red seed heads. Sumac tends to colonize in low (5-15 ft.) growing hedges. It is fabulous for wildlife and yes, you can use it in your CREP or wildlife-landscaping at home.
Even after the leaves fall, the best is yet to come!
This is bird food, man. Watch for these seed heads this winter and I guarantee you'll fine Chickadees, Titmice and Bluebirds. What could be more lovely than a sumac in snow?
Plant some habitat in your back yard and enjoy the year round benefits of Sumac.
You'll be screaming for these reds.
