    Does it keep producing in dry weather? If it doesn't rain soon, we're going to be pretty dry.

    As far as I know, sumac has a taproot and is drought tolerant. Actually, I had read that clear, dry, hot days are the best for sumac to produce nectar, and that on cool or cloudy days it won't even produce nectar.

    Sumac makes a mild, pleasant tasting honey. Sumac gets treated like a weed around here, so it grows mostly in fence rows and vacant lots. It isn't a major nectar source, but it does contribute some, especially now when we are getting close to the end of our spring nectar flow in North Alabama.
