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

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!
