Cascara in bloom

Posted by blueberrytalk on June 3, 2010

Cascara is a shrub like tree that grows naturally in the area. It is best known for the laxative that comes from its bark. It has a reputation as a good source of nectar that produces amber-colored honey from the tiny yellow flowers. The distinctive veins on the leaves make it easy to identify.
