RE: Grangeno?

Is it Celtis pallida? I think it fits the descrption and is called Granjeno as a common name and it produces orange berries.

Good luck!

RE: Grangeno?

Yes it is!! so now on to the hunt I go, I already have a huisache? it blooms yellow very fragant viciuos thorns!! but its worthed. I am trying to start growing natives trees easy care. I found a toothache tree he is kind of big so I am not sure how well it transplants BUT the owner is going to clear the lot. so I am going to try and save it, actually I am looking for a sapling of this tree so that maybe it will grow for me. Thanks. Marcie

RE: Grangeno?

You seem to be looking for very nice native plants. Unfortunately native plants are underused so its a challenge to find some of them, but if you want them they are worth looking for.

Good luck finding them!

RE: Grangeno?
