Toxicodendron succedaneum Wax Tree is a large shrub or tree native to Asia, with beautiful autumn foliage that has led to it being planted as an ornamental plant in other parts of the world. However, gardeners have often been unaware of its potential for causing allergic reactions. In Australia and New Zealand, it is now classified as a noxious weed. The tree produces hinokiflavone, a cytotoxic biflavonoid, and the fatty-acid methyl ester of the kernel oil meets requirements for use in biodiesel. The sap is used in Japanese art as a lacquer, and the leaves can be used to make brown dye or mordant. While the fruits are edible, it's not recommended to consume them due to the plant's general toxicity. Please check the legality of importing the plant before ordering, as it is considered a noxious weed in many jurisdictions.
