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.

Gold Mine Inkberry Holly.  This distinct cultivar of our NATIVE Inkberry Holly was found as a sport on the cultivar Ilex glabra 'Shamrock' by Maryland's Gabe Ceserini. It has distinctive gold margins on its leaves with occasional all gold leaves. This selection was pointed out to me by Mark Weathington of the J. C. Raulston Arboretum, Raleigh, NC. We have had some problems with certain cultivars of Inkberries not thriving in "container culture," but this one does exquisitely well. It is dense and compact in growth much more so than the species. It performs well in full sun to part shade, but the more sun, the brighter the gold color. It lends itself to shearing as a small hedge or allowing it to grow naturally in the landscape. And it has a particularly broad range of adaptability from zones 5-9.
