We went to Lake Hills/Medina Lake area today and the hills were alive with blooming Flame leaf sumac. It's red foliage is a show stopper in the fall, but it's pretty impressive when blooming too ...

I wish I could dig one up and move it full size to my yard ...

I don't have time or space to grow everything native and beautiful, but if I were starting over this is one I'd plant, On the other hand, there's always room for one more, right?

Flame leaf sumac, why don't we have one? Did you find us some? I still haven't found one around here but I haven't been able to get to Barton Springs and they might have one.
I had to add to this post....when we lived in Drippin', they were all over on our property and I am ashamed to say, I took them for granted, : (

Jolana, I know what you mean. I used to have the pink Texas buckeyes growing wild in my back yard (we had an acre) and they were just weeds to me.

I have them suckering under an oak. The large one up the hill from me died in the drought.

Let's get one each this fall, I'm ready! I haven't even been to a nursery in months but right now it is too hot when I am not around as much
