Sassafras - A deciduous North American tree with aromatic leaves and bark. The leaves are infused to make tea or ground into file. An extract of the leaves or bark of the sassafras, used medicinally or in perfumery.

Gumball – dwarf shrub cultivar seldom more than 6 feet (2 meters) tall, with purple-red fall color.

The Mapple trees sap is the sugar produced in a tree’s leaves by the process of photosynthesis, mixed with water brought up through the tree’s roots. The sugars in sap provide fuel for the tree to grow and thrive.

A wildflower (or wild flower) is a flower that grows in the wild, meaning it was not intentionally seeded or planted. Yet "wildflower" meadows of a few mixed species are sold in seed packets. The term implies that the plant probably is neither a hybrid nor a selected cultivar that is in any way different from the way it appears in the wild as a native plant, even if it is growing where it would not naturally.

My design theory is that I will use the sap from the maple tree to make a sticky wall that you can walk on. We would spread the sap all over the wall so that you could walk side ways on the wall.
