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.

This may be as late as April or May, 2023. We may choose to delay shipping other plants as well.

Fragrant Winter Honeysuckle. This old standby shrub is one of the earliest harbingers of spring. One can cut branches, bring them inside in a vase, and voila, January fragrant white flowers. The shrub is large and spreading, 6-10' with an equal spread. Here is zone 8 it tends to be semi-evergreen. It is one of the first harbingers of spring as it produces fragrant, creamy white flowers which begin to open in mid January and continue to early March. Brilliant red berries sometimes follow flowering, but not consistently. It does well in full sun to part shade and grows in almost any soil as long as it is not water-logged.
