Rare Conifers/Trees

bjbrodrickAugust 17, 2008

Am interested in finding any of the following at a decent size (5 gallon or larger): Cedar of Lebanon, Pinus Bungeana, Dove Tree, Yulan Magnolia, or Katsura Tree. Anyone seen them lately, or heard of any wholesale nurseries that might grow them? I have searched most of our retailers near Athens and in Northeast Atlanta. Would also welcome any advice on utilizing these plants in our climate, and how they do. I have found that a lot of the "full sun" flowering trees enjoy a little dappled shade in our Georgia summers.

Thanks for any help from a new poster.

I don't know the nurseries near Athens but, you can try Just Add Water in Conyers, Scottsdale Farms in Alpharetta and Buck Jones in Woodstock. They have more than the typical landscapers mix.

Try contacting Bannister Creek Nursery in Duluth. Harry has a very nice collection of unusual things, plus he is very knowledgeable. The nursery is only open Thurs.- Sat. call to make sure

Thanks -- had forgotten about Bannister Creek. Have heard Just Add Water orders a lot of their stuff from the Pacific Northwest so I want to be a little careful there.
