How We Protect Your Plants For Transit

We sell only bare root plants. We dip the roots in tera-sorb silicone gel to retain ample moisture for transit and surround with plastic. This provides superior protection for plants in transit for up to 12 days.

Upon Receipt Of Your Plants

Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receipt unless weather prohibits. Store in a cool place and keep roots moist and covered with plastic until they can be planted. Water daily for the first week after planting.


Sassafras Trees

Hardy Planting Zone- Sassafras trees are best suited to be grown in USDA growing zones 3 through 9 (from as far north as Minnesota to most of Florida)

Bloom Season - Sassafras trees bloom in the spring (March, April, & May)

Bloom Color -During their bloom season, Sassafras flowers will appear in 2-inch clusters of yellow or green flowers

Height at Maturity - Sassafras trees grow to be anywhere between 30 & 60 feet tall at maturity, with a branch spread of 25 to 40 feet and a trunk diameter of 6 to 8 inches

Soil Type Preferred- Sassafras trees grow in acidic soils, sands, clays, and loams with a pH under 7.0, with the optimal range being between 6.0 & 7.0. They are intolerant of poorly drained soils and are native to areas along fence rows, dry ridges, and upper slopes.

Sun or Shade - Despite growing almost anywhere in the United States and Canada, Sassafras trees grow best in areas with partial sun to partial shade.

 Sassafras are deciduous trees that are native to eastern North America and Asia.

Known worldwide for their aromatic and medicinal properties, they are grown from places as far north as Canada, as far south as Florida, and as far east as Taiwan. Historically, oil extracted from their root bark and twigs has ++been used to add flavor or scent to many products, including root beer, candy, perfumes, and soaps.

They grow at somewhat of a faster rate than most trees and can add between 1 & 2 feet per year.

Their growth is stopping somewhere between 30 & 60 feet. Once they reach maturity, their branches will spread between 25 & 40 feet wide, displaying the tree’s mitten-shaped leaves that come in colors like yellow, orange, green, red, and brown.
