Sassafras Trees

Helping Butterflies

nawnie1 added on April 30, 2016 | Answered

I am close to Columbus, Oh. and just read that a certain butterfly likes a Sassafras bush. Do you know where I could find these bushes? I have butterfly bushes and Milkweed, and I would like to include this bush also. I know I have heard of the tea, so I know they are around, but where? Any suggestions? Nawnie1
