A Selected Sumach Tree in Blossom
There are numerous species of sumach, familiar as wild shrubs to everyone who has lived in the country, and even to the casual tourist, owing to the brilliancy of their foliage in the early autumn. For some unexplained reason, the sumach is seldom seen under cultivation, yet it merits a place in the park and dooryard. There Is excellent opportunity for experiments in selective breeding, through combining the different species.
