RE: Plant question

Auralie, I don't know if anyone else has answered on this one as I'm just
trying to play catch-up on an enforced "ice" day from work.  (The senior
care center closed and left me little choice.)  

Sunlight Gardens ( www.sunlightgardens.com ) carries a "Rhus aromatica
'Gro-low'" in their 2004 catalog (pg 27) for zones 3-9 which is supposed to
be a dwarf version of Rhus aromatica (fragrant sumac), and is a shrub
rounded 6' shrub with the r.'grow-low' being used as a ground cover for a
dry slope at 2-3 ft tall.   I don't know if that will fill the bill for you,
but it sounded interesting anyway.

Didn't mean to send that duplicate.  Hit the wrong button - stupid, clumsy 

Wanted to ask this august group if anyone knows of a commercial source or 
cultivated form of Rhus copallina or Dwarf Sumac.  I have seen it growing on

Constitution Island - the only place in this area I have ever seen it.  By
river is a much milder climate than we have just a few miles away.  I have
it growing in Maryland - Bombay Hook, and it is much larger than the one on
Hortus III says it grows to 20 feet, but the one on the island was only
4 feet tall and as much wide - a most attractive shrub which had stunning 
fall color.  I have been looking in nursery catalogs, and don't see anything
closely approximating it.  So wondered if anyone here knows.  Gene?  Marge?
