A beautiful tree with great Fall colors. The leaves release a fragrance when crushed, but the bark has even more perfume as it contains the resin called storax. The bark is burned as an incense and is used for fumigation. The balsamic resin is an expectorant used in inhalants for bronchial infections and is also used to treat skin disease. Mixed with rosewater and witch hazel, it makes a cosmetic astringent. 2 year old plant. Hardy to zone 5.
