07.16.07 STAGHORN?

This close up of the fruit of the sumac, Rhus genus, shows the distinctive pyramidal shape of the berry clusters. It is a native shrub (Yeah!) which grows easily in waste areas. In the fall the leaves turn a brilliant red. One variety of sumac that is common around here is known as staghorn sumac, and I am thinking that is what this plant is.
