Common Name Sassafras Variety  
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Sassafras albidum
Description One of my favorites, Sassafras albidum is a small deciduous tree that usually reaches a mature size of only 25'High x 20'Wide, but can grow much larger in richer organic soils. This tree is intolerant of shade and will do well only in full sun. In early spring it will have small yellow flowers which are very attractive and in autumn the leaves can be a rainbow of colors from green, lime green, brilliant yellows, oranges, burnt orange to red all on the same tree. A truly desirable small tree for any landscape. The aromatic leaves, roots and bark are often used for medicinal purposes. The fruit is gobbled up by an array of bird species. This gem of a tree is as drought tolerant as a bucket of nails.
