 Rhododendrons indicated as “Year Olds” are year-old custom rooted cuttings. They may be small and will be “heeled” into suitable sized pots. Those in 4″ pots will be good-sized plants.

Conifers and Ginkgos where noted as 1 or 2 year grafts will be in 4″ or 6″ pots where not indicated otherwise. Due the dwarf nature of many of these plants they may be quite small. The same may be true for those in 1 and 3 gallon pots.

(Orders will be accepted after this date but our quantity of plants will be adjusted to suit actual demand at this time.) Do not send payment with your order form. You may order more than one plant per variety. However, plants will be allocated in the order in which they are received on the basis of one plant per variety per membership. Following this allocation, an adequate reserve will be retained for the public sale. Any surplus will then be divided up amongst multiple orders.

Substitutions: You may list acceptable substitutions for specific plants by entering the substitute number in the substitute column beside the plant you are ordering.
