Spicebush – Native Shrub

In April 2019, we went camping at Raccoon Creek State Park to finish visiting all of the State Parks. We went to the wildflower preserve nearby and saw skunk cabbage, spring beauty, trout lily, and spicebush blooming. I just found out what spicebush looks like a few days ago. I remembered the picture I took, and sure enough, it was spicebush. It’s the host plant for spicebush swallowtail caterpillars, and migrating birds eat the red berries from its female plants in the fall.
