To be honest this package has plants I have been really wanting to get in my personal collection, so I hope you don’t order this so I have lots left over for my yard. Basswood has been on my top “want” plants for years for all the reasons listed below, and the same with False Indigo! For those of you who want to get some great guilds working, this one will set up some great pollinator attraction and honey bee support as well as nitrogen fixation and a hardy vining fruit producer.
Basswood – Tilia americana
American Linden tree, Basswood. Flowers in spring that the bees flock to. Important source of nectar early in spring for honeybees and other nectar sipping insects. This makes an amazing and famous honey that sells for a dollar an ounce. Also makes for a great fodder tree with excellent palatability and protein. I may be building this package as an excuse to have some extra trees left over to add to my personal collection if that says anything about how great of a tree this is. Bare root seedling Conservation Grade 1′-2′
False Indigo – Amorpha fruticosa
False Indigo is a VERY tough nitrogen fixer that is one of my favorites for support species in livestock excluded systems. It’s toxic to some ruminants so be careful with it’s placement, but it’s beautiful, grows well, and fixes nitrogen, grows 10′-16′ tall, grows from Canada to Florida. Pollinator attracting plant. This plant is made of win. I only have a few so I’m hoping nobody buys this package so I can keep them all to plant around my fruit bushes and trees as well as to plant around my garden.
Bare root seedling Conservation Grade 1′-2′.
Fox Grape – Vitis riparia
Plum Grape, northern fox grape, northern muscadine, swamp grape, wild grape, frost grape. This is the grape that concord was developed from and most all American grapes are grafted onto. Great native grape that is fantastic rootstock for most any other grapes you want to grow. Grows quickly, extremely hardy. Wildlife love the fruit, so do people! Bare root plant Conservation Grade 3″-6″
