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.

Chinese Graybeard of Chinese Fringe Tree. This magnificent plant is the Asian counterpart to our native Chionanthus virginicus, or Grancy Graybeard. But, it makes a much larger specimen. It is native to both Japan and China, and I have seen grooves of it in its native habitat with trunks up to 18 in. in diameter, 30 ft. tall with an equal spread. When customers come into our retail shopping for a dogwood, most leave with this plant instead, because it does much better in full sun than a dogwood and it doesn't have the disease problems that most often accompany dogwood. Once established it is nearly indestructible.
