Due to the winter weather, orders from these states will ship in the spring, April to May: CA, CO, IA, ID, KS, ME, MI, MN, MT, ND, NE, NH, NV, OR, SD, UT, VT, WA, WI, WY. And due to the extreme cold and wind which we experienced through the Christmas holidays of December 2022, many Osmanthus varieties won't be shipped until we are assured there is no cold damage. This may be as late as April or May, 2023. We may choose to delay shipping other plants as well.

Curly Leaf Ligustrum. Dirr says that his impressions of this plant can't be printed, but I rather like this little oddity. It has a very upright growth habit with contorted leaves. It probably resembles more of a piece of modern art than it does a plant. But it can be an excellent feature plant in a container or in a strategic place in the garden. It does quite well in sun or shade and will produce 2" spikes of white fragrant flowers in May. Even though it is a rather slow grower, it can get quite large, but it is easily maintained at a manageable size. One of the more memorable incidences with this plant was told me by one of my employees, when an older lady came in one day wanting a "possum-eared plant." He told her that he did not know a plant by that name. So when they went walking in the nursery yard, she spotted this plant and said, "There's that possum-eared plant." Looking at the contorted leaves, one can see how it has this epithet.  (Photo compliments of Wise Nursery)
