Carefully hand dug plants:
1) Standard- This size is the most frequently used due to combined excellent propagation and beauty. These are available in 13” Balled in burlap, #7, squat 7, and #10. with no price difference. These will normally have 1 or 2 culms larger than 1/2” caliber. They will typically be in the 8-12' tall range.** See quantity discounts
2) #5 pots are also ready to go in the most popular species. These will have culms in the 3/8” to 1/2” range and will be 8' or less tall. These are most frequently used for planters and are slower to reproduce (propagate) than Standard plants.** See quantity discounts
3) #3 pots are ready to go in limited species and small supplies. They have approximately ¼” culms and are less than 6' tall. These reproduce even slower than #5s and so are typically suited to movable sized planters.
4) 2” caliber (culm diameter) plants(and larger)- These are machine dug due to the root ball size and come in a wire cage over burlap. These will be custom dug and start at $200/plant and go up depending on species and size requirement. Call for pricing on these.
