This is a photo of the Champion tree of this species in Georgia. It has been called the Angelica tree and grows in the southeastern U.S.. It is small, deciduous, and bipinnate often with multiple stems. The bark is covered in spines. A distinguishing feature not seen in this photo are large leaf scars. Native Americans traded the flowers for money and the citrus smell was used as a perfume. This species is hardy for an urban setting if the spines don’t get in the way.
