The fully ripe fruit of this easy to grow native tree will not be likely to win a beauty contest with dark red orange skin speckled with black but on your palette it is like eating persimmon candy. Provide the American Persimmon with good drainage and give it plenty of room to grow. Our plants are seedlings and you will need a male and female for pollination. Item# 10930

Cercis canadensis var. canadensis

In late winter to early this tree literally covers up in clusters of pink-purple to red-purple pea-shaped flowers that are borne from seemingly every nook, cranny, and twig and even along much of the trunk.

This is a new item for us. An unusual fast growing tropical to semi-subtropical naturally evergreen tree that is best known for its multicolored display of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple hued new bark that is shown off once the strips of exfoliating bark peel away during summer growth. The young bark starts out a rich green and fades through the other colors to red over time. The Rainbow Eucalyptus is the only Eucalyptus species which occurs naturally in the Northern hemisphere. Considered hardy into zone 9, it is probably best suited to freeze free climates. Item# 11630

Sassafras

Sassafras albidum, Laurus albidus

A beautiful native tree, the Sassafras produces reliable orange, red, yellow, and even pink fall color even in southern regions of the US. Yellow to greenish-yellow, lightly fragrant spring flowers are born in clusters at the tips of the bare green stems as they herald the arrival of spring. Female trees may produce clusters of large, shiny dark blue to blue-black "cherries" that sit atop bright red pedicels that birds and other wildlife will adore. The foliage, besides being edible by humans, is used by the Spicebush, Palamedes, and Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterflies as a host plant. The Sassafras tree is generally fast growing and pyramidal when young and normally develops into a small to medium sized tree although rather large specimens are known to exist. Sassafras was selected as the Georgia Native Plant Society's 2013 Plant of the Year! Item# 9824.
