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. Nitrogen Fixer. North American native plant.

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.

Newly grafted trees of all varieties listed plus some others will be available in late May. . North American native plant. Grafted

wild Plum

(Prunus Americana)

Full Sun. Full size on own roots (not grafted), plant two for pollination. disease resistant

These seedling trees are extremely disease-resistant and set bumper crops of golf-ball sized fruit every two years.  In between years get a smaller crop.  The fruit is red-skinned and yellow fleshed and glows when the sunlight hits it!  It is delicious eaten straight off the tree with a slight astringency that comes through delightfully in wine made from these fruits.  The roots will sucker so if you do not mow around them, they will eventually form a clonal “grove” of plums for you! .
