You're sure to notice sumacs every autumn -- most varieties are known for putting on an eye-catching show when their foliage turns festive shades of orange and red. Many types also attract birds in summer, fall, and winter, thanks to the plants' fuzzy reddish fruits. The variety Tiger Eyes is especially ornamental thanks to its golden-yellow foliage in spring and summer.
Sumacs are easy to grow in sun or part sun and any well-drained soil. They hold up to drought well, though many varieties tend to spread aggressively. Be sure to give sumac room to form a large colony.
