Perennial Hibiscus 'Red Star'

ClWe havThousands of young palms with more and more reaching a good size and ready to go out of here to other nurseries, landscape contractors and retail sales. We have been growing cold hardy palms from seed for almost 40 years. Most all the large palms you see at our place and at our nursery were started out as smaller plants which establish better than large ones. They grow up in place and are acclimatized to the area they will spend their life.
