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.

Snow Dragon Hardy Citrus. This variegated "Flying Dragon" which I have christened as 'Snow Dragon' is an incredible collector plant. We graft it onto seedlings of 'Flying Dragon.' It is quite unique in that the new growth comes out totally white, both stems and leaves. Then as the wood begins to harden off, the stems gradually turn green. Its leaves may be totally white or have a green center with a broad white margin. We have recently had some of our older plants flower and fruit, the fruit being quite small. Most citrus come true from seed, so it will be fascinating to see if the variegation is carried over into its seedlings. We have left it outside in a container all winter with no protection and there was no damage whatsoever down to the mid teens. Since these are grafted plants, one needs to watch for all green suckers which will come from the understock. Just remove them with a pair of pruning shears as close to the trunk as possible. As the plant becomes older, sprouting from the understock will cease. Speaking for its cold-hardiness, we have had a customer in Connecticut grow it outside in the ground successfully.

We are not allowed to ship citrus into the following states due to their agricultural regulations:  AZ, CA, FL, GA, TX
