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.

Amadokoro Solomon's Seal. We were initially calling this selection 'Kayaba Nishiki', but I have since identified it as 'Amadokoro.' I first found this incredible Solomon's Seal in Japan in a small specialty nursery in 2004. The most unusual aspect of this establishment was that it had a large collections of live raptors: hawks, eagles and owls, sitting all over the nursery. Some were in cages and others were just tethered to their perches. When I first saw a single stem plant of this selection in a 6" pot with its over-sized white margins, I was afraid to ask the price. It was over $300.00 U.S. currency. But I never regretted purchasing it at all. (You see. I don't play golf and I don't fish.) This cultivar is truly "awesome!" That word is not overused when referring to this selection. There are I think about four similar selections on the market with the wide white margins similar to 'Amadokoro' and all are quite impressive. As a matter of fact, a couple of these are patented. It is a fairly good divider or multiplier as well and I have never seen any reversions on it. When dividing down to a single bud and rhizome portion, I will have three buds the following year. So each year I have been able to multiply about three fold. The culture of this selection is the same as with other species of this genus: part shade, good drainage with uniform moisture. The bell-like white flowers are typical of the species.
