The "Grow Low" sumac (Rhus aromatica 'Grow Low') is a low-growing, spreading shrub that is native to eastern North America. It belongs to the Anacardiaceae family, which also includes cashews and mangoes.

This plant typically grows to a height of only 1 to 2 feet (30 to 60 cm) and can spread out up to 6 feet (1.8 m) wide, making it a good choice for ground cover or as a border plant. It has shiny, dark green leaves that turn bright red in the fall, adding a burst of color to your garden.

In the spring, "Grow Low" sumac produces small yellow-green flowers that are followed by red, hairy fruit clusters that persist into the winter months. These fruit clusters provide a food source for birds and other wildlife.

"Grow Low" sumac prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. It is tolerant of drought and can also grow in poor soil conditions. It is generally low-maintenance and does not require much pruning or fertilization. However, it can spread aggressively, so it is important to plant it in a location where it has enough space to grow without overtaking other plants in your garden.
