Culture: fairy tale Cinderella.
Rhus toxicodendron is seen by some older botanists as one with Rhus diversiloba and Rhus radicans since they can be distinguished only with difficulty. It is possible that the proved Rhus tree was actually Rhus radicans, which is much more common. The nomenclature in this is very confusing.
Rhus toxicodendron can be: Toxicodendron pubescens, Toxicodendron toxicarum, Toxicodendron radicans or Rhus radicans.
They feel suppressed by family or partners, by a tyrannical and alcoholic father or a nasty stepmother. The theme of Cinderella, who is special but disrespected, not seen in her true glory.
