Ptelea trifoliata, Hoptree, Wafer Ash

Hoptree is a deciduous small rounded headed tree or large shrub.  Flowers are small yellow green in a dense cluster form: the foliage is aromatic when leaves are crushed, yellow fall color.  It forms a spreading, usually multi-stemmed plant that seldom exceeds 20 feet in height.  When in bloom it's as if you are walking through an orange grove.  The common name refers to the fact the fruit were once used in making beer as a substitute for hops.
