Sassafras

We’ve loved our sassafras trees, so transplanted many saplings from our Clemson house to our house in the mountains.  Thankfully, we’d had both males and females, so HAD saplings to transplant.

The two planted next to our neighbor’s house (a rental) some years ago are so interesting right now (I see them out the upstairs window) — their fall color is so different.  The tree on the left is yellow; the one to the right is dark red.  How interesting!

I found no mention on previous years’ blog posts about this, only happy comments about their flowering in spring, so this must be a curious weather anomaly.  Here’s what they look like now.

  2. How interesting. My sassafras is a mix of goldish orange leaves right now. Stunning!

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
