About the Plant: The prickly ash can grow to 25 feet high. In the spring the tree bears small, fragrant, yellow-green flowers before the leaves appear. These are followed by round, red berries. The berries are gathered in the late summer. The bark is stripped from the stems and gathered in the spring.
