They are in 3 gallon pots, I started them last year from seeds. I think I have 15 of them that I don't have room to plant. I'm in north central Arkansas (Izard/Independence county area) if you want them and can come get them, let me know.....

Too bad you do not have room.
How did you start them? (I have one tree and seeds and want to propogate.)

I collected them in the Fall, just put one seed each in pots of composted dirt, left them outside all winter, and the next spring they grew out.....real easy.....my neighbor says if he doesn't mow on a regular basis he'd have tons of them growing all over his yard....

I have a bunch coming up in my flower bed. Want to pay the priority mail postage for me to get them out to you? I'm in Smithfield, VA

Can you tell us what this type of tree is good for, and what their usage is?

Thanks

Drought resistant, tolerant of urban air pollution, blooms in as little as three years, nectar and pollen. In my area, it comes on after wild blackberry finishes and not much else is blooming..The bees lose their minds over this tree.

Yeah, native bees lose their mind over these trees but honeybees don't, in my experience.
