Rhus aromatica ‘Lo Grow’ (Grow Low Aromatic Sumac)
Habit: Gro-Low is a special cultivar of the straight species of Fragrant Sumac. It’s a low growing spreading shrub that can be used as a native groundcover.

Great for stabilizing banks, massing, groundcover, or controlling erosion.

Culture: Very adaptable and can be used just about anywhere. Does best in moist soils but vigorous and hardy in most places. Full sun or part shade.
