{Devil's-Walkingstick - Aralia Spinosa}

Near the road, alongside the creek we found these flowers up a tree on August 12, so husband Pieter did make some photos and I did look it up and came to the solution: Devil's-Walkingstick - Aralia Spinosa.
At first we were a bit misled because some sites were speaking about this tree having thorny prickles on its stem.
But the Caroline Nature site about Devil's-walkingstick (Aralia spinosa) did give us the explanation for that.
If you click the above link and scroll down you will read: The name Devil's-walkingstick comes from the trunks of small trees, which are armed with many stout prickles.
Aha, only the small trees!
Our tree is already quite tall and husband Pieter had to zoom into these flowers.
So we got another mystery solved and now know the name of this tree.
Those flowers were also fragrant, we could smell them when we walked outside.
Do any of you have a Devil's walkingstick?

In The Netherlands we knew the Aralia Elata, or in Dutch: Duivelswandelstok.

      We'd heard about it but this was a complete surprise and probably got here along the creek via birds...

  2. Dear Mariette,
    What a pretty woodland tree! Such an interesting name, also. It is similar to our Western Washington 'Ocean Spray'. So nice that it is fragrant, also.
    Wishing you a lovely week
    Hugs xo

      There are so many surprising trees and we discover always something new.
      Love your lacy cardigan over that beaded dress in your profile picture. For some reason it just showed up here very large! You look beautiful and very happy.
      Hugs,

    2. Your Oceanspray or HOLODISCUS has different leaves but does a little bit resemble this. The dwarf oceanspray is called 'Rock Spirea' so that explains what it is related to. The West has such different trees and shrubs than here in the East.
      Enjoy the remainder of your week!

      Guess you will have the very same Devil's-Walkingstick as we have in The Netherlands, that is called Aralia Elata and is very similar though.
      Enjoy your spring unfolding and the many blossoms!

      Thank you, the natural habitat can be quite beautiful and I guess that birds do bring in seeds and such. The Aralia Elata is available in your area and it's also called Devil's-Walkingstick.
      Enjoy your week; we got a dreary rain day again.

      Always great to find out more in detail and reliable information from a good site! This variety grows only here in the East of the United States. You will have the Aralia Elata, very similar.

  9. Good Afternoon Mariette, I have never heard of a Devils Walking Stick Tree and I do not recognise it either. Probably our climate is a little too cold, but I am going to look this tree up in my RHS Book to see if it does grow here in England.
    I love plants and trees which treat us to a beautiful fragrance when we pass by. As always I learn something new when I visit you.
    Have a lovely day today.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne

  18. Lieve Mariette,

    Zeker ken ik deze boom met prachtige bloemen en donkere bessen in de winter.
    Paar jaar geleden fotografeerde een andere blogger uit NL in het bos een boom met bessen waar zij de naam niet van kon achterhalen,ik ging op zoek en vond de naam Duivelswandelstok voor haar en een dergelijke naam vergeet je niet zo snel.
    Mooi dat de boom in jullie tuin staat en ik hem na jaren weer tegen kom op deze mooie foto's.

    Lieve groet,
    Ger

      Ja vroeger hoorde ik deze naam in Nederland vaker maar heb 'm nooit gehad.
      De bessen in de winter zullen ook nog best mooi zijn straks als het winter wordt.
      Het was echt een leuke verrassing om deze boom te ontdekken!
      Lieve groetjes,
      Mariette
