Northern Prickly Ash
I have oft been requested to collect seed of this species for those of you growing for the ethnobotany industry. Native to eastern North America growing on upland rocky hillsides, moist low-lying sites or in open woods, sometimes forming dense thickets in the wild. This is a small tree or shrub armed with strong, conical brown prickles along its branches. It has good lustrous foliage and all parts of the plant are fragrant. The bruised leaves and the seed have a delicious resinous citrus-like perfume. Insignificant flowers in early summer are followed by showy black seeds inside a red berry-like casing, which splits when the seed is ripe. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Cold treatment required.
