The amazing sassafras!

There is a sassafras tree on our property line so I get to see it regularly. I am always taken by its appearance.

Sassafras leaves

Yes, by looking closely, it does have three different leaves. One left handed mitten, one right handed mitten and one tri-leaf.

How cool is that!

For the more technical description of leaves, visit the wikipedia page
