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.

Ranch Elderberry. This is a new superior fruiting form of our native American elderberry, which is highly valued for its medicinal and nutritional values, and is reported to be anti-viral as well as anti-bacterial. It is also an excellent source of vitamin C. This selection is a heavy fruiting form which must be planted with the cultivar 'Wyldewood' for cross-pollination. It will produce a flower head of up to 12 inches across. They do best with uniform moisture and will also tolerate some shade and still produce a heavy crop of fruit. It is quite vigorous but will not get quite as large as its partner 'Wyldewood', reaching only 5-6 ft. high with an equal spread. AS with all Elderberries, it is not eaten as fresh fruit but when properly prepared it is  highly prized for its juice, jellies, syrup and wine.
