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.

Chason's Gift Chinese Fir. A selection made at Johnson's Nursery, Willard, NC, with glossy dark green needles and a more compact conical form than the species. Its best attribute is that it does not languish around in the shrub form for several years, but almost immediately sends up a central leader. This is the best new introduction that I have seen with this species in my lifetime. Native to China, this species can reach 150' in its native habitat, but here in cultivation 40' is considered quite large. It has the undesirable attribute of dropping 3-4 year old "branchlets" which turn brown and fall under the tree. So the most desirable way to grow this specimen is to allow its branches to grow all the way to the ground, thus covering up the fallen debris.
