ARALIA SPINOSA. Also know as Prickly elder, Angelica tree, Hercules' club, Toothache bush or tree. The Aralia spinosa is a small tree, growing to about 30 feet. Best suited for zones 4-9. The leaves are very large and long, often 3 to 6 feet in length, prickly, bipinnate, and borne on long, prickly petioles. The flowers are white, and disposed in numerous umbels, forming a very large panicle. The involucres are small and few-leaved. The fruit consists of blackish, juicy berries. The aralia spinosa inhabits the United States in various parts, from Pennsylvania to Louisiana, and westward to Missouri, growing in damp and rich woods and fields. The thin, ash-colored bark is the part used, although other parts of the plant possess medicinal properties; it has a peculiar, somewhat fragrant odor, and a slightly bitter, biting taste; alcohol or water extracts its properties. It is frequently grown in the Northern States for ornamentation. It blooms in August and September.  BEST SOWN IN FALL OR WINTER.
