Landscaping: Fragrant sumac is a small low growing shrub that is used as a ground cover.  In the fall, it exhibits beautiful orangish red foliage. The leaves when crushed smell fragrant. This sumac does not give you a rash if you touch it.

Wildlife: The fruit is an important winter food for birds, including turkey, ruffed grouse, robins, and flickers, and for various small mammals (e.g., raccoon, opossum, chipmunk). The foliage is relatively unpalatable to most species of wildlife and domestic livestock. Thickets of fragrant sumac provide cover for many species of birds and small mammals.
