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.

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.

Here in Southern Indiana we are in prime persimmon country.  Wild American persimmons literally grow like weeds in our fields.  Persimmons have no significant pest or disease problems, making them an excellent low maintenance choice.  So if they grow wild here why do you need to purchase a persimmon tree from a nursery?  There are several benefits: the most significant reason is that American persimmons are diœcious – trees are either male or female, and the males don’t fruit.  So if you plant a seedling you have a good chance of ending up with a non-fruiting tree.  We do sell seedlings for the adventurous among you, but most of our trees are grafted: a branch from an improved variety of female persimmon is grafted onto a vigorous seedling rootstock.  Most American persimmons need a male for pollination, although some cultivars are self-fertile or partially self-fertile (producing some fruit without pollination, but will produce more with a male).  If you live in the country here in Southern Indiana/Northern KY chances are you have a male persimmon tree somewhere nearby.  They don’t need to be very close for pollination.  Asian persimmons and their crosses are usually self-fertile.

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.
