  1. staghorn sumac

    Staghorn sumac is a species of flowering plant in the cashew family, known scientifically as Rhus typhina. It is native to eastern North America and is named for its branching pattern that somewhat resembles the antlers of a stag deer. The plant has compound leaves and produces small green flowers, followed by bright red, fuzzy fruit in autumn. It can be used for ornamental purposes due to its vivid fall colors and distinctive shape. Staghorn sumac is resistant to many environments and usually thrives in bright, direct sunlight. It's also not usually eaten by animals due to its sour and astringent berries. However, the berries can be used by humans to make a type of "sumac-ade" similar to lemonade.
