Perennial Hibiscus 'Red Star'

ClWe havThousands of young palms with more and more reaching a good size and ready to go out of here and be planted. 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.
Please call for hours.  
 After we do a landscape installation we go back to take photos the second season after it goes in. That is when everything has put on nice new growth and looks the best.  Here is one I took photos of  recently in its second season since planting.
