i would LOVE to plant a sassafras tree ... but none of my local shops have any trees. Does anyone have any to share?
I have some volunteers coming up in my side yards. I'd be happy to pot one up and send it on. These are small tho'.
It grows wild in the woods around Baton Rouge.
Grows wild in my front yard in Kenner, too. Smells so good when you brush against or crush a leaf. It's very hard to pull them up, though, one really got out of hand, I can't kill it and I've tried.
In case anyone who originally posted here catches this: I also want a sassafras seedling or two. I live on Alabama gulf coast and want one for the back yard. Love the smell and its a great native butterfly host. I'll pay $10 plus shipping to whoever makes the effort to pull one up for me. Thanks.
I will have small seedlings in the spring that come up from the roots of my big tree. Email me if you are interested in trading in the spring for some of the seedlings. I can also get some larger plants from someone who pots them up. Email me if interested.
question: How do we email you, when you don't leave an email? I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have several seedlings available. I'm in the Tyler, Texas area.
