Smooth sumac is a lush, green, attractive plant that has a wide range of uses

 If you want to create an inviting garden, grow your favorite flowers and watch them thrive with these beautiful bushes. They're also a perfect size for lining the way to your front door or along a walkway. It is an underused, pioneering species that often takes on the very qualities gardeners seek—such as a dense and spreading form, leaves with a feathery leaf stem, and foliage of many different shades of green.

This plant typically bears orange and red berries. The smooth sumac is an opportunistic species and may be found in a variety of habitats, including woodland margins, on creek banks, and near farm buildings.
Found in the Eastern United States, it is a small tree with a wide distribution. The leaves are feather-compound with 15 to 23 leaflets. The stem is smooth without wings, and the leaflets are pointed at the tips and rounded at their bases.

The plant is often found in disturbed areas around homesites and farms and can be propagated by seed or root cuttings. It is a versatile plant that can be used for eating, medicine, and juice.
