    Received my dry-root trees today. They were well packed and looked healthy. Will be planting them in the next few days (as soon as the snow and ice melts!) so they will get a nice spring start when nature says, "GO!"

Sassafras Tree – Albidium

A captivating, North American tree known for its brilliant display of autumn foliage and aromatic smell. Native to most of the eastern United States, Sassafras  is a fragrant addition to yards, businesses, and gardens. It's unique unlobed oval, trilobed, and bilobed leaves set it apart from other trees. Leaves are 3"–7" long, bright to medium green in summer changing to enchanting colors of yellow, deep orange, scarlet and purple in the fall.

The sassafras tree provides food and shelter for wildlife. he fruit is eaten by deer, bears, wild turkeys and a wide variety of other birds.

Produces a wonderful aroma.

Its summery yellow blooms are mildly fragrant, though all parts of the tree smell of citrus and root beer. The blooms are delicate and hypnotic to insects. Flower structure is of compound organization with six pale yellow translucent petals and subtle veining visible throughout; the center contains darker yellow pigment apparent within the nine stamens possessed by the male flower, and also the centered pistil of the female. 

Drought resistant, Sassafras grows well in sandy soil, prefers full sun, and does well in zones 5 through 9.

Considered a moderately easy plant to maintain, as it's natural habitat is fields, open woods, and along fences. Prefers moist, well-drained soils or sandy loam soils, but is relatively tolerant of a wide variety of soil conditions. It can be grown as a single-trunk tree or a dense, bushy thicket. It has a lot of sucker growth, so be sure to remove those if you want a single-trunk tree.

Sassafras trees are drought-tolerant once established

Though they require regular water when young to help develop a strong root system. Sassafras trees transplant poorly because of their long taproots.The sassafras compliments a naturalized garden atmosphere or habitat offering room to grow and space to thrive.
