Hi just to say a big thank you to everyone for helping me to recognise this plant/tree as a Rhus.

On  further reading about Rhus, I think I will admire the plant from afar, the problem with suckers sound like an absolute nightmare.

so thanks for your help much appreciate.

Hi can anyone name this plant off my description please. 

Its  a small tree, I've seen some a couple of feet in growth and some four or five feet in growth.

I've seen it growing with one or sometimes two thin trunks, it's leaves are shaped like whisteria as in they are short strips grown along the centre stem, but are overall larger than whisteria, at this time of year the leaves are changing to a lovely red and orange colour.

Hi everyone, regarding the Jude's Ear, fungus growing in between flagstones.

Dovefromabove, you asked me if there was some wood nearby, well I checked the area and the only wood  within three feet of the fungi is my shed so it's not that.

However, I was discussing the fungi with my hubby and he said he was sawing a lot of wood in that area some months back and the sawdust will have settled in the cracks of the paving slabs so maybe the fungi grew on this ???

Can anyone say if this is likely??

Wow, thanks everyone, I'm amazed at the information regarding this fungi how interesting, I've never heard or seen anything like this before.

There isn't any wood around the area as far as I can see but I will certainly investigate further  this weekend.

thanks again I'll let you know the outcome.
