Spicebush (Lindera benzoin)
If you want to spice up your landscape, plant this native understory small bushy tree and the spicebush butterflies may grace you with their presence. Spicebush, along with sassafras, are essential host plants for the caterpillars of this butterfly. They also have culinary value for adventurous cooks. Spicebush can be found on the Bent Twig Tail near the circle of benches, and in many low laying wooded areas of Bernheim.
