Very Large hosta with green round leaves that measure 14” x 10” Near white flower in June. Extremely thick leaves that cup upward and downward with wrinkled appearance. A very rare find, and wanted by most hosta lovers.
This southern native has very narrow, needle-like leaves that line the stems like bottle brushes. Surprisingly, they are soft as silk to the touch.

After blooming, it quickly grows to reach a height of about 3 feet.
This small tree produces white flowers and black fruit usually eaten by birds before fully ripe. The outstanding exfoliating bark is golden brown to dark red with a glistening metallic color for excellent winter effect and landscape interest.
Lower branches slowly droop toward the horizontal as the tree grows forming an attractive outline - almost the perfect small tree form. If grown near a walk or along the street be sure to prune early in the life of the tree to locate the lower branches far enough up on the trunk where the drooping branches will not interfere with traffic below. This will eliminate the need to prune older trees which reportedly close over the pruning wound very slowly. Most branches grow upright and will form a wonderful canopy over a sidewalk or narrow road. Amur Maackia should be grown in full sun on well-drained soil, either acid or slightly alkaline. Plants should receive not be exposed to excessive flooding. Amur Maackia has nitrogen fixing bacteria associated with the root system and should require little maintenance other than some pruning early in the life of the tree.

This is an excellent variety for northern United States and Canada. Unsuitable pollinator for 'Haralson'.

The State Fair Apple, Malus 'State Fair', has a flavor that is sprightly tart and good for eating and baking. It has good texture that is semi-acid to sweet. State Fair is especially recommended for trial in regions where winter hardiness and a short growing season are limiting factors, so it is one of the better early apples for northern growers. This all purpose apple is one of the better early apples, but it has a short storage life.
