· Who Loves Root Beer? This is the “Root” that started the beer
· NATIVE TREE! One of few plants Swallowtail Butterflies will breed on
· Not a front yard tree, but grows well on wood edges. Will colonize
· All tree parts important to nature, roots, leaves, & berries
· Full Sun to Shade in sandy loamy soil; water well until established
· 35’ tall tree at maturity with deep creviced bark Very interesting!
