Rhus with Purple Flowers

Posted by jekeesl Central AR 7b (My Page) on

This large shrub appears to be Rhus copallinum, because the leaves are winged. That species is wide-spread in our area, and currently has white flowers with green and yellow tones. I've never seen one before with bright purple flowers. Is this another species, a commercially produced hybrid, a naturally occurring form, or something else?

It could be a Winged Sumac.

Yup, that's right. I thought those were flowers, but blew up the photo and saw that they were fruit. It's early to see fruiting specimens here, so I was fooled once again. Thanks for the help.
