Sumacs: The Good, the Bad and the Beautiful

Plant Talk with Mike YannyAbstract

You see, sumacs can be heroes with character flaws, just like Clint Eastwood in the movie. Most are good to have along the roadsides where they perform admirably even under extremely tough conditions. The bad sumacs are really bad!!! Poison ivy and poison sumac are like the bad guy in the movie at his murderous worst. They can torture you for weeks on end after an unfortunate encounter. In the fall, all the sumacs are beautiful, with foliage colors of magnificent maroon to red and oranges and touches of yellow. Even the poisonous species have beautiful fall color. OCTOBER 2012 - Sumacs: The Good, the Bad & the Beautiful.
