LSU Groundnut

(Apios americana)

Full to Part Sun. Large edible tubers, nitrogen fixing, attractive, frangrant flowers.

An improved variety of a native plant developed at LSU. There are reports of the tubers reaching the size of basketballs, but they will likely be smaller in our climate. Wait at least 2 years before first harvest. Tubers and seeds are both edible, and have high protein content for a tuber (17%). Prefer rich, well drained soil. Flowers are fragrant, very pretty, orchid like, smallish, and born in clusters. Nitrogen Fixer. North American native plant.

Improved Maypop Passion Fruit

(passiflora incarnata)

Full Sun to part shade. 2×3″ flavorful seedy fruits, native, invasive vine. Self-fertile

Similar to the well-known tropical passion fruit–a perennial, very ornamental vine with showy, fringed, purple/white flowers all summer long.  Bumblebees and hummingbirds love them!  2×3″ oblong fruits turn yellow and often drop when ripe, and each contain a large amount of sweet-tart, apricot-flavored, seedy pulp.  Maypop is a native plant, but beware that it is very vigorous and invasive once established.  Plant it somewhere you can mow around it to keep it contained, as it will send out long runners underground.  A great choice for taking over a fence in the back corner of your yard or covering a hard-to-mow slope.  Maypop dies down to the ground in the winter and is late to emerge in the spring, so it is not the best choice for covering shade structures unless you only need late summer and fall shade. . North American native plant.

Black Fry Muscadine

Vitis rotundifolia

Full Sun to Part Shade. Large, sweet black fruit with seeds. Very vigorous, super disease resistant. Female variety needs bronze self-fertile for pollination (Carlos)

Muscadine grapes are native to the Southeast US. They love hot humid weather and don’t suffer from the diseases that plague european grapes. They are care free, super vigorous, have huge fruit, and are great for landscaping since the leaves stay glossy and attractive all summer long. So the downside… they tend to have thicker skins and seeds. The non-self-fertile female varieties have the best flavor (the others are good too), but need a self-fertile variety for pollination. Fruit is either black (dark purple) or bronze, and some sources say that you need a bronze self-fertile to pollinate a black female variety, and you need a black self-fertile to pollinate a bronze female variety. We are just on the northern edge of their range. We offer varieties that are bred for more cold hardiness and that have survived above the ground for us. These are large vigorous vines, so plant 15’ to 20’ apart

Native Eastern seedlings  Hazelnut

(Corylus americana)

Full sun to shade. edible ornamental, 6-8′ tall with equal spread, plant two for pollination

A lovely landscape accent plant or hedge that also bears prolific crops of nuts. Since these are wild seedlings, the nuts are small compared to the improved filberts and the shells thicker. Nuts about the size of a pea when shelled out but very tasty and sweet!  Plants are a little slow to get going but really take off after their second year in the ground. Shrubby growth gets 6-8’ tall with equal spread.  Fall foliage is stunning with colors all over the spectrum.  Showy male catkins in the winter and spring. Immune to Eastern Filbert Blight. Plant two for pollination. Can take shade to full sun. Space 4-8’ apart. .

Misc. grafted Pawpaw

(Asimina triloba) 

Full Sun to Full Shade. space 8′-15′ apart, needs pollinator

We sporadically carry too many different varieties of papaw for me to keep up with them all. They also sell out quickly. Right now, for example, we have about 10 gallon size grafted trees, but I don’t have an exact inventory count of which varieties. Newly grafted trees of all varieties listed plus some others will be available in late May. . North American native plant. Grafted
