Do you all also think this is sumac?

Have been letting this weed/volunteer grow near some hostas along the driveway. If I am identifying right it is sumac. A quarter mile down the street is the nearest "normal" sumac I know of. I have Rhus...typhina(?) "Tiger eyes" only thirty feet away. They have suckered a bit bit those appear to be clones. No flowers yet so I would not think it is seeding.

Thanks in advance

Oh and sorry for the random sized pics. From the cell I cant always scroll back up and edit the html.

Great pictures BTW. You make it easy.

Thank you once again Dan.

Were you able to tell by the smooth leaf edges and the lack of a pinkish stem?

Guess it is off to the burn pile for this fella.

Amazing the knowledge and recognition you all have even over the nternet.

I'm not Dan! I'm better looking and tougher (just kidding Dan, don't hurt me). (-;

Leaflet shape (with the glandular notches near the base) is a good first clue.

Man, I have watched too much football today. Cant even tell the difference between Brandon and Dan!

Time to cut some Rams from my fantasy team

After you beat through some brush and hack and spray enough, you'll recognize them immediately.

If my travel schedule somehow takes me to the area, Brandon owes me a nice microbrew. ;o)
