try aralia spinosa.
supposedly the largest flower of any native american genus, and the largest compond leaf of the same.
heads about 1 1/2' across, pink flowers with purple berries. heights at maturity 12'??????
saw the japanese equivalent at the missouri bot gdn this summer. same "exact" look.
also saw a very pricey variegated version at a commercial nursery in minnesoooota, a couple years ago. all very thorny along the thin stalks.
