This small tree/shrub is in the woodsy area of our backyard. Only the top is in full bloom and covered in all types of bees – at least 100. The foliage looks like that of a sumac or black walnut. This is a spindly tree that has a truck about 5 inches max circumference. The tree is bent over, I guess due to the heaviness of this big blooming top section. There is a smaller one next to it that does not have the large blooming top. Not really sure if categorized as a tree or a schrub.

    Thank you for the replies. After I posted on this site, I also posted on FB and a friend informed me it was Devil’s Walking Stick. Quite an interesting plant!

    No thorns? Compare to Smooth Sumac.

    aralia spinosa (Devil’s walking stick) I love them… attract pollinators like mad… The only drawback is they colonize.
