Trees available now and in fall.

Plants will vary in price and container size Some will only be available during dormancy – late Fall or early Spring — and will be updated this winter. Seed or plant exchanges are always welcome!

Due to PayPal’s inability to handle and charge appropriate fees for multiple combinations I decided to re-edit all my listings to a ‘plant cost only.’  At the bottom of each listing page will be three shipping alternatives.

Gingko
Ginkgo biloba brings back memories of my High School in Oakland. In the front entrance there were three trees, that must have been amongst the first planted in California.The tree trunk is erect and the branches form a dense crown when old. The bark is gray and very cracked. Leaves are fan-shaped and yellowish green. The Fall foliage was simply unforgettably GOLD. To this day I still remember sitting on golden cushions during lunch break.This ancient tree has survived many extinctions and charms us with its unique fan (duckfoot-shaped leaves and butter-yellow to brilliant gold fall color. It is very tolerant of urban pollution and thus I suggest this tree merits greater use. It is for large gardens only!

 garryoak2

The Garry Oak can actually be considered as one of the most beautiful choices as a shade tree. Though slow growing, it casts only moderate shade and has a very deep and well-behaved root system. Large specimens can be 75-100 feet height with trunks up to five feet in diameter. These trees can be 500 years old, and even smaller trees only 30 feet high can be 200 years old. The other native oak in the Northwest is the California Black Oak. Q. kellogii Though faster growing, it is shorter lived, but as they will live some 200 or 300 the gardener should have little reason to complain. The Garry Oak will grow some 40 to 90 feet height with a spread to match. It is not for the small garden. It’s deep root system makes it a wonderful tree to plant rhododendrons under, or other native plants. The shade cast is a filtered one so it is a great choice for such plantings. I am offering 4-5 year old trees that are growing in two gallon cans for $9.95 and $15.95 and shipping. [wpepsc name=”Garry Oak” price=”9.95″]
