SEED ORIGINS LISTING

 

Our catalog of plant stock is unique in that we strive to grow most of our stock from Original (not planted) or Ancient sources.

 

(A) indicates seeds from an Ancient Source. Please be sure to visit our Ancient Listing for the tree stories.

(O) indicates Original and native source but not necessarily Ancient.

 

Map point vs. Seed Zone – A geographical map point is far more detailed for indicating seed origins than a growth zone.
