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.

Welch's Pink Beautyberry. This pink fruited selection of our native gives us a completely new color in this genus. The plant will grow 4-6' with a great spread and will encircle its branches with "wads" of fruit. Dr. Michael Dirr plant several thousand seedlings of this plant, expecting to get some variants for different colors, but they were all identical. The Callicarpas are best when pruned to the ground in late winter. This will induce more vegetative growth and since it flowers on current season's wood, one will have more fruit. It has been shared with me that one of the best natural mosquito repellants is the leaves of this species. Crush the green leaves rub them over the skin surface, and this gives one about six hours of protection.
