Name this plant

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.

    Spindle bush?

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    Description of leaf like a wisteria, plus mixture of single and multi stemmed habits brings Rhus Typhina to mind.

  • 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.
