Sassafras is a lovely native woodland tree that displays beauty and interest all seasons of the year and makes a wonderful addition to the home garden. The branches are gracefully layered, with horizontal branches that are wider near the bottom and gradually narrow as they near the top.
In spring, delicate chartreuse flowers bloom from fat terminal buds before leaves open. Most leaves are mitten shaped – others are simple ovals or have multiple ‘fingers’. Children elight in holding their hands against the leaves, checking the fit of mittens and gloves.
