What plant is this

Asked October 28, 2019, 7:39 AM EDT

I found this plant in Banning State Park on October 26 of this year. It appears to be flowering and turning color at the same time. Can you help me identify it? Will Perry Hugo, MN

Dear Will,
Thank you for writing. There are several possibilities. It could be a young ash, perhaps a wild sarsaparilla https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/flower/wild-sarsaparilla
That is the best I can do. Go back there in the spring and take another look. A plant ID app-there are many and I cannot make commercial suggestions--might be helpful.
Best to you.
