Lichens growing on Hercules' Club (Zanthoxylum clava-herculis) Rutaceae
This is one of my favorite trees. The character and personality that these trees have is wonderful. If you are looking for an interesting small tree to add to your landscape, this is a good one. It is a Texas Native so it is not choosy about moisture, even doing well in a xeriscape. Bees and other insects love the flowers (stinky) and birds love the fruit. It has very interesting growth habits which will endear it to you. Oh, and yes, it even has medicinal uses!
