Fragrant Sumac, Rhus aromatica, is a vital shrub to butterflies and is also native in the lower 48 states.

The flowers of Fragrant Sumac are full of sweet nectar that butterflies flock to and ensure that their populations can be fed and thrive. Most Fragrant Sumac plants are very large and tall, but Gro-Low was most likely taken from an outlier in the wild that grew smaller than the rest. Enjoy the benefits of a native sumac just in smaller form with the Gro-Low Fragrant Sumac.
