Common Name Hercules' Club Variety  
Regional Names Toothache Tree
Botanical Name Zanthoxylum clava-herculis
Description This coastal species is a small drought tolerant tree that is often planted as an ornamental because of its unusual thorny trunk. It is also a host plant for the Giant Swallowtail Butterfly. Chewing the leaves will cause numbness in the mouth and was once used by the Indians to deaden the pain of toothaches, hence the name Toothache tree. Glossy dark green foliage grace this far-out small tree that matures to 20'High x 20'Wide.
Notes
We expect to have smaller specimens available summer 2018.
