Rhus microphylla

Little Leaf Sumac

Occurring across the Southwest at elevations from 2000 to 6000 feet, this deciduous shrub forms a dense mound of arched, spiny branches. Green compound leaves turn red in autumn. Birds and small mammals find shelter in the branches and feast on the red berries. Plant in full sun and provide well-drained soils.
