Osage-Orange

  |  1/14/2013

Named after the Osage tribe of Missouri, Osage-orange trees were highly valued for
their dense wood, which made strong and flexible bows. The champion Osage-orange
- located in Virginia at Red Hill, the last home of Founding Father Patrick Henry -
was already 120 years old when Henry moved to the plantation in 1794.
