Re: new day new problem... low grow sumac

Wilt, as in limp, drooping leaves? I had one that last year put out  
leaves smaller and sparser than usual, and I was sure it was in  
decline, but this year has normal leaves and growth again. Perhaps  
there may be some hope. Your issue seems definitely a root problem,  
and you may not know until you do a post mortem. I love that plant  
and hope yours survives.
