This package was picked out by my fantastic friends and customers. You guys keep asking for food forest system plants. I have a mix of low maintenance trees and shrubs perfect for both mid and understory niches. The Aronia and Elderberry are great medicinals and the pawpaw is one of those trees everyone is nuts over. Retail on these pawpaws in a pot alone makes the rest of the trees in the pack basically free. This package is best grown in a fantastic wide range of zones 4-8. Conservation Grade bare root plant 1′-2′ tall ***** SHIPS IN LATE SPRING *****
Black Chokeberry – Aronia melanocarpa
The Aronia Berry, very ornamental with flowers, berries and autumn foliage. Grows commonly in wet areas but tolerates dry sites. Hardy and adaptable as well as being resistant to salty soils. Slow to medium growth, grows around 8′ tall and 4′ wide. Fruit is not very good fresh eating out of the hand, but is reported to be an excellent addition along with elderberry for seasonal wellbeing. We can’t include the reasons people use this combined with Elderberry to make medicinal syrup, but I’m sure you get the idea. Bare root seedling Conservation Grade 1′-2′.
Pawpaw – Asimina triloba
Known as Paw Paw, false banana, custard apple. It’s a hardy plant that grows wild through much of it’s range so you know it is highly disease and insect resistant. Can grow quite large with a height up to 30′ tall and a spread of up to 20′, however when grown in full sun, often never gets taller than 15′. Be careful to not make pawpaw a staple in your diet as some people have sensitivities to trees in the Asimina genus. Similar to a banana, but unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. While they will grow in full shade as an understory, they will grow much faster and produce far more if grown as an edge tree or in partial shade to full sun. Needs to be watered consistently, not tolerant of dry soils. Suckers and will grow to form a sucker colony of clone trees. Bare root seedling Conservation Grade 1′-2′.
American Elderberry – Sambucus canadensis
The fantastic and venerable Elderberry that my family and many others swear by to keep colds and flu away. We make elderberry syrup and jelly and use daily during cold and flu season. Makes excellent wine either standalone or as a blend. Our kids love this as a jelly and especially as a pancake syrup if the jelly didn’t set right. Some of my favorite childhood memories were when we got the rare treat of Elderberry syrup on waffles. Bare root plant Conservation Grade 1′-2′.
