    A 15 to 20 ft zone 4a tree that is native to eastern Canada (not to be confused with the smooth sumac Rhus Glabra which can be found growing in the Spence's Bridge / Clinton areas of BC).
    R. Typhina is a drought tolerant tree and suitable for xeriscaping. It is also wonderful for Autumn color as the leaves will take on a variety of colors ranging from yellow to orange to red.
