Ptelea trifoliata (Hoptree) larval food for the Orange dog caterpillar that transforms into a gorgeous Giant Swallowtail butterfly; interesting wafer-shaped fruit. Zone 5-9.
SIZE: 1 gallon
Ordered 2 Hoptrees. Very pleased with the plants. Arrived quickly and nicely packaged for shipping. I recommend mail order natives and would order from them again.
Hopstree was packed very well and arrived healthy...no sooner planted I had lovely Giant swallowtails eggs on her...I will be back for more natives...I have a feeling this lovely little tree will bring plenty of enjoyment to the garden
Arrived nice and healthy. Planted them in a nice acidic soil. I hope they thrive.
I purchased one each of three native plants. It is too early to know they will do well here in Virginia, but everything I can Evaluate is good: the order is correct, timing is prompt, packaging is superb. My plants are in the ground looking happy and it is now up to me to keep them that way.
Extremely easy website to use, and excellent shipping time and e-mail tracking. A great price for a rather hard plant to find! Shipped with a large root ball and good amount of soil. I highly recommend, and I will be back again!
I have ordered many mail order items over the years. Not only were these the best packaged and prepared items I have ever received, but the plants were also in superb condition and larger than expected. I give an unqualified recommendation.
These trees arrived in great condition and were fine specimens. I have eight year old trees and am a fan -- beautiful small tree, fast growing, amazing spring fragrance and foliage, and great for wildlife.
I'm excited to have this tree - looking forward to the coming years seeing it become a butterfly host tree. The tree was a nice size and was very carefully packed. The roots looked healthy. I may get a couple more this coming spring!
bigger trees than expected
