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.

Grey Ghost Florida Anise. This selection of our southern native shrub, Florida anise, Illicium floridanum, was made by Tommy Dodd of Semmes, AL. It has pewter grey foliage with a fine white margin on each leaf. Surprisingly, the flowers are a pale pink. This plant is much more vigorous than one of Tommy's previous variegated forms, 'Shady Lady.' It is really quite vigorous, considering the amount of variegation. It grows best in filtered sun or part shade. It will make a large shrub of up to 6-8'. The first photo is compliments of Mike Chelednik.
