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.

Duet Beautyberry. This recent introduction from the National Arboretum has white berries and variegated leaves with white margins. It is really a showy plant and very vigorous. Even though this selection is a branch sport, it is extremely stable. In a block of over 1000 plants, I  saw only one small branch with green leaves. Now if we can just find this same variegation on a plant with purple berries. This species is a Japanese native, so some years back I took rooted cuttings of this, among other selections, with me to Japan to give to Japanese nurserymen as gifts. Only a year or two later, I saw this selection all over Japan! It benefits by pruning back heavily in late winter to produce more succulent new growth. Also, berries are produced on current seasons wood.
