Asimina triloba (Pawpaw) 15-20ft; interesting small tree; maroon colored spring flowers; edible fruit; host plant for Zebra Swallowtail butterfly.
SIZE 1 gallon
I've had a hard time finding this plant but finally did & happy it arrived looking good was larger than expected & is growing well. Hope a zebra swallowtail finds it.
Not sure why, but I've lost all of my paw paws over the last few years, some due to very hard freezes. I adore the zebra swallowtail butterfly, though, so I'll continue to have paw paws around for them. These paw paws arrived in fantastic condition and look very healthy. Very quick shipping also.
I've had the plant a few days and so far it looks like it will thrive. I planted it in a pot and put it in partial shade. The cost of the plants ($8 per) seemed okay but shipping cost seemed to expensive. I couldn't justify the cost of 1 plant being $7 and cost of two plants being $15.
