Rhus ovata (Sugar Bush)


Indigenous to dry, mountainous regions in the Southwest, this dense evergreen shrub has lush, oval, leathery dark green leaves. Creamy white flowers in the spring are followed by small red fruit. Excellent drainage is critical to prevent verticillium wilt. Plant in full sun to part shade exposures.
