Macro Monday: A Crimson Hairy Drupe

Staghorn Sumac or Rhus typhina, these are the beautiful hairy drupes that persist on this less than desireable plant in Minnesota in the winter. It is native to Minnesota, but is viewed as a second class citizen..because it grows so well and spreads so much. Check out more macros at Lisa's Chaos:)


  1. it is beautiful and goes so well with that white snow! :)

  2. We have plenty of it here in Wisconsin. :) It is like a big weed but I still find it pretty and I enjoyed your close up look at it. :)

  3. I never knew what they were called before and when I read your title I just had to see what it was, LOL. Great shot.


I love your comments! I am glad you stopped by! Connie
