Gro-Low Fragrant Sumac (Rhus aromatica ‘Gro-Low’) is a fast-growing plant that can tolerate almost any growing condition. Rapid growth is a huge bonus in a groundcover, because it means you can more quickly suppress weeds and add a pretty green color to a landscape. With its fragrant yellow flowers followed by red fruit, this is a stunning groundcover, especially near outdoor living spaces or walking paths. Use the fragrant low shrub to cut down on weeds, control erosion on banks, or cover soil that can’t support other plants.

Birds flock to the berries, but deer leave the sumac alone. What’s more, you get color in most seasons–yellow spring flowers, red summer fruit, and fall foliage in shades of red, yellow, and orange. Once established, sumac is drought tolerant and will colonize along the ground to form thickets of growth, even in the poorest soils. It grows to only about 1 or 2 feet high, but spreads to 5 or 6 feet across. And it’s hardy in zones 4 through 8.

Gro-Low Fragrant Sumac Care

This low-growing sumac thrives in sunny or partly sunny spots, so be sure it gets 4 to 6 hours of light per day. Choose any soil type and don’t worry about amending the soil before planting. It can root in dry and poor soils, as long as they drain well. 

Care is simple. Avoid overwatering your sumac, but make sure it gets adequate water in its first year of life to root well. After the first season or two, it can tolerate periods of drought well. There is no need to fertilize the plant. Just remove dead or damaged branches in late winter.  

Gro-Low Fragrant Sumac Spacing

Since your sumac will grow outward and form a thicket, avoid planting several too close together. Place them about 5 feet apart, and they eventually will meet to create a groundcover.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
