Sumac in Summer

Sumac is one of the best trees for bees and other pollinators because it is native, colonizing, tolerant of many soils as well as drought.

These native plants can be seen on our roadsides with clusters of pink to dark red fruits and compound leaves with brightly colored leaflets.

Sumac fruits will be ready for birds in October.

Its red fall color is beautiful here in Tranquility.
