Rhus ovata

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Rosids Sapindales Anacardiaceae Rhus

Sugar sumac or Sugar bush.

This plant puts out strange buds in November which sit on the plant without opening for months until April.

The leaves are about 2~3 inches long, usually pointed, sometimes serrated. In full sun the leaves tend to fold over the central vein — into something vaguely taco shaped.

In more open flowers, the pink color isn’t noticeable.

The berries are covered with sugar.
