Mystery contest item 2

It is mystery item contest time again! I am talking about the reddish leaves, not the round squashes.

Email your guesses about what this is to and I will choose a random winner from the correct answers on July 1. The winner gets a $5 Barnes n Noble gift card. Woo hoo.

It helps, of course, if you read Chinese. If you do, the sign will tell you what this is. Give me either the english name or the chinese name sounded out - I can't read chinese characters and that would be, well, too easy.

the leaf shape suggests a sumac, but that is poison, right? Could it be "castor beanea"?

It tasted kind of poison!
