This bush or small tree is one of the most reported and used plants (for medicinal and other purposes), not on1y in the regions studied, but in all Catalonia and in many other areas as well. It is one of the most versatile plants, since its uses embrace many different fields like medicinal, food, ornamental, craft industry and games among others. It ís, in addition, aremarkable fact that almost every part of the plant (bark, root, leaves, flowers, fruits) has some uses.
