  1. squaw-bush

    Squaw-bush is a common name for a species native to California called Rhus trilobata which is a deciduous shrub with white flowers and red fruits. It's also known as skunkbush sumac, sourberry, or three-leaf sumac. However, the term "squaw" is considered derogatory and offensive to many Native Americans. Thus, alternative names for the plant are encouraged and more widely accepted.
