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

. North American native plant.

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. .

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. . North American native plant.

Thornless Seedling Honey Locust

(Gleditsia triacanthos)

Full Sun to part shade. Small % may develop thorns. Fast growing, tall, spreading trees make nice shade trees. Seedpods good livestock feed.

Seedlings from a grove of thornless parent trees.  There is a small chance that some may develop thorns as they get older.  Fast growing, tall and spreading trees create dappled rather than deep shade.  Can take a variety of soil types, known for being able to grow in polluted, compacted urban soils.  Pods are an excellent livestock feed (nutritionally equivalent to barley grain by sheep and goats) and the pulp is a sugary “nibble” for people too.  Lumber has some rot resistance and is a beautiful honey-red/orange color.  We might have some thorny individuals available if you prefer a tree that protects itself from varmints.
