Big Fattie’ Thornless seedling Honey Locust

(Gleditsia triacanthos)

Full Sun to part shade. Small % may develop thorns. Fast growing, tall, spreading trees make nice shade trees. Selected for fatter seedpods which make good livestock feed.

Seedlings from thornless parent trees with fatter pods.  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. Nitrogen Fixer. North American native plant.

Quart pots $16, Gallon* pots $18, 2-Gallon* pots $30

Amorpha False Indigo Bush

(Amorpha fruiticosa)

Full to Part Sun. Native nitrogen fixing shrub up to 18′ tall, but can be coppiced

Amorpha fruiticosa is an attractive native wildflower shrub. It is a legume, and is often used in permaculture plantings as a nitrogen fixer – usually with the plan to coppice the bush (“chop & drop”) because it will reach a fairly substantial size if not chopped down frequently. 15-18′ tall and spreading up to twice that width. NOT edible, it’s practical benefits are mostly beauty, nitrogen fixing and soil stabilization, and it also has some potential as a natural insecticide. Fast growing, thornless. Nitrogen Fixer. North American native plant.
