Common Sassafras

Traditionally not an easy to transplant tree due to its deep taproot, we are now growing this native tree in small containers for better transplanting success. Fast growing, forming an upright oval shape, the green, mitten-shaped foliage has outstanding autumn colors in shades from yellow to deep orange, scarlet and even purple.

Plant Features:

  • Height: 30 - 60'
  • Spread: 25 - 40'
  • Shape: Pyramidal to oval
  • Foliage: Medium green
  • Fall Foliage: Yellow to orange, red and purple
  • Zone: 4 - 9
