Why I love sassafras
DP310-2015 Posted Friday, November 6
Young sassafras showing off its fall colors. This was quite a young plant, a recent addition to the area that features native Michigan trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. The whole plant was barely a foot tall, but covered in leaves, each of them a glorious red, and each leaf strongly mittened. If the adult tree is anything like this, it will be spectacular.
