These small trees are on fire with color right now at the Wildscape.
I thought you might like to see them.

Thank you Marty, we had many of them on that area but the drought killed more than half, I managed to keep those alive watering once a week, it has been very hard this year around here.

I am glad you have some, I have two in the corner by the fountain, but they are still very small.

I am believing it is the smooth sumac that is...it was one you had at RU one year I think. This picture was just as it began to turn.

Yes it is, and doing very well indeed, and it looks like you are taking very good care of it.

The are such beautiful trees and grow very fast. I remember the one my Grandfather has when I was a young kid. I wish I could buy one here were I live in Arizona but I have never seen them for sale in the Phoenix area.

Does anyone know how much cold a sumac tree can take?

As long as your ground does not freeze, it will come back each year. It is deciduous and the tops may freeze but it grows quite tall in one season, perhaps 6-10 feet.
