Orders are for the Fall Season

 

 

Fall Season our trees are not yet dormant. As such, we ship the plants in containers.

Fall shipping season will be coming to an end in mid November. Last day to place a Fall order will be November 11th 2021

 

 We do not recommend fall plantings for USDA plant zone 5.

 

If you are planting in USDA Zone 6 or 7  for this fall season your window for a successful acclimation from our warm plant zone of 8b in Florida to zone 6.  We recommend a Spring order or planting, for zone 6 & 7 this late in the planting season.

 Due to high demand of our trees an order placed today will not ship out until a few weeks.

Ideally it would be best to plant young trees coming from Florida in late September for plant zones 6 and in October for plant zones 7.

You will want to protect your young trees from any frosts and freezes or delay shipping to our spring bareroot/dormant season.

 

 

Fall orders are shipped by USDA Plant zones.

Plant Zones 6: late September
Plant Zones 7-8: October–November
Plant Zones 8-9: November

Chickasaw plum (Prunus angustifolia) creates a diverse benefit to any habitat. This native tree produces abundant fruit, flower and cover that is attractive to many walks of wildlife. Chickasaw plum attracts pollinator species by producing fragrant white flowers in early spring. These flowers add to the pollination health of local habitat, as well as create a natural beauty for your enjoyment. This tree is one of the first fruit to appear in summer which attracts wildlife from the local habitat. Chickasaw suckers to create thickets that wildlife use for bedding and cover.
