Rhus aromatica

Native

Fragrant sumac prefers upland open woods, fields and rocky cliffs. It is used as a ground cover, and an excellent shrub for stabilizing banks and slopes. The leaves and stems have a citrus fragrance when crushed. It is often confused with poison ivy, but poison ivy is not fragrant and inhabits more diverse habitats.
