Gro-Low Sumac (Rhus) is a tough ground cover for banks and areas of poor, dry soil. The divided glossy green leaves are fragrant when brushed against or crushed, and th foliage displays excellent red fall color. This plant is adaptable to full or part sun and is a fast grower to 2 to 3 feet high, spreads 6 to 8 feet.

To help your new plants become established, amend the planting site with some organic matter to help hold in moisture. Be sure to follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. As a ground cover, space plants 5` apart, (closer for faster coverage). To reduce competition for moisture and nutrients, control weeds with mulch until the plants cover the area.
