    I bought two bare root plants. When I did the scratch test, one was dead. The tree company immediately rectified this and soon after I had a replacement. I hope to have a male and a female for berry production for wildlife. I bought these because I am transitioning my garden into a native plant garden. This is a host plant for the Spicebush Swallowtail. Both plants were very well packed and shipped! So far, so good!

    Seedlings arrived dormant, packed in ghost crystals. Planting went well and they seem to be adjusting to their new environment.
