No, Aralia. Devil's Walkingstick, Aralia spinosa. Also known as Angelica Tree, among other names.
This plant (assuming I have identified it correctly, and that it isn't a similar-looking Asian species) is native to the eastern US, from Pennsylvania west to Iowa, south to Texas and Florida. It is one of the more curious plants found in Paulik Park, Richmond BC.
For it is basically a stick, from which long, wide-based petioles extend with compound (bipinnate) leaves (the leaflets themselves are divided into leaflets). The entire leaf surface makes these the biggest leaves of plants native to the United States.
The plant grows as clumps of unbranched woody stems that can reach 15 or 20 feet. It prefers rich, damp soils, often within the understory of moist bottomlands.
Very good. And who else is waking up?
