Description

The Konza Sumac is similar to the Fragrant Sumac but in dwarf form. Konza Fragrant Sumac is a sprawling yet small to medium-sized deciduous shrub, up to 2′ ft. tall and 6 ft. wide.

This irregularly spreading shrub produces highly fragrant foliage. Its glossy, blue-green leaves put on a show in the fall. They burst into a symphony of orange, red, purple and yellow in the fall. In the spring this flowering Sumac produces yellow flowers followed by dark-red berries.

This shrub is loved by nature’s critters; the flower’s nectar attracts butterflies while its berries (which may be ripe in both summer and winter) attract many birds, including robin, sparrows, goldfinch, and chickadee. Additionally, the berries are editable.

Try soaking them for 10-30 min to make a lemonade-like drink or ground it into a powder for use in cakes and porridge. This plant is hardy! It can grow in most soil types and conditions, is drought tolerant, and generally pest and disease-free.

It is fast-growing and enjoys partial shade to full sun.

This shrub colonizes to form thickets and looks best when planted en-mass. Colonies are often single-sexed, formed from a single, suckering parent. Only female plants produce flowers and berries. It is good for stabilizing embankments or for hard-to-cover areas with poorer soils.
