Sassafras albidum

Sassafras trees are valued for their fragrant spring blooms that attract butterflies. It is also a host plant for a variety of butterflies. Bright green foliage adorns the interesting, horizontal branches and turns a striking yellow, orange and red in the fall. Female flowers produce dark blue fruits held on red stalks that are relished by birds.  Trees can sucker but if a single stem is desired suckers are easily mowed. Sassafras has been cultivated since the early 1600’s for it’s use as food, medicine and for building.
