>Staghorn sumac near Greenville City Park (submitted by EH)

>This staghorn sumac is growing adjacent to Greenville City Park next to the county government building. Native Americans reportedly smoked the fruit of sumac and made a lemonade-type drink from it. It is not poisonous. Poison sumac, which grows in swampy areas, differs in appearance.
