Sugar Bush (Rhus ovata)
|Common Name||Latin Name||Plant Family|
The leaves are rich in tannin. They can be collected as they fall in the autumn and used as a brown dye or as a mordant.
An oil is extracted from the seeds. It attains a tallow-like consistency on standing and is used to make candles. These burn brilliantly, though they emit a pungent smoke.
Often planted in poor dry soils in America, where its extensive root system helps to prevent erosion.
