Aralia spinosa, also known as Devil's Walking Stick or Devil's Walkingstick, is a unique and aromatic spiny deciduous shrub or small tree. It can grow up to 6-20 ft tall, with a simple or occasionally branched stem. One of its distinctive features is its very large bipinnate leaves, which can reach lengths of 25-50 inches. The stems of this clump-forming tree or shrub are extremely prickly, and it produces lacy white flower panicles. The leaves, which are the largest of any tree in the continental United States, turn a beautiful bronze-red touched with yellow in the autumn. The Devil's Walkingstick is usually found as a group of unbranched stems, resembling a tropical palm. However, as the plant ages, it becomes scrubby and deformed. It typically flowers in late summer, with creamy-white flowers and purplish-black berries that ripen in the fall. The roots of this plant are thick and fleshy. Despite its prickliness, the young leaves of Aralia spinosa are edible and can be cooked as a potherb. This versatile plant is a moderate grower and can adapt to various soil types. It has moderate lifespan and moderate resprout ability. Aralia spinosa is available for commercial purchase and propagates easily from seeds and bare root. It is not commonly used for industry purposes but is appreciated for its unique appearance and presence in gardens.
