Bloom Description: Greenish yellow flowers appear in spring, summer and fall. The flowers are tiny, but packed in showy terminal clusters 6-10 in (15. 2-25. 5 cm) long. The fruits appear in fall and persist through much of the winter even after the leaves have fallen. These small red pubescent drupes are hung handsomely in big beautiful clusters against the colorful autumn foliage. Winged sumac often forms thickets and a mass in bloom or in fruit makes a memorable sight.

Notes for Identification: Winged sumac is a good choice for low maintenance or xeriscape landscaping. It is easy to transplant and easy to care for. It grows well on sandy, infertile soils. It usually is planted in informal landscapes or wildlife gardens where it may spread by underground runners to form a shrubby thicket for songbirds and other wildlife. Its showy fall foliage provides an added benefit. Winged sumac grows well in urban areas where air pollution, poor drainage and compacted soil prevent most small trees from surviving. It is used in buffer strips, highway medians and reclamation projects
