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.

Yunnan Itea. To my knowledge, this species has the largest leaves of the genus Itea and can be from 4-5" long by 2" wide, dark green and glabrous. It is found in China from 300-10,000' elevation in the provinces of . Guangxi, Guizhou, SW Sichuan, SE Xizang, and Yunnan in a mixed forest of broadleaf and coniferous species. It has a graceful weeping form with terminal flowering racemes of 6-8". Ours  appear to be the blushest of pinks. Whether this is clonal, I do not know or maybe it is even environmentally induced. This is another one of those great plants shared with me by Dr. J.C. Raulston.
