    It was out of stock when I wanted to order, but I was quickly notified when it came in stock and had time to place my order before it went out of stock again. The plant was shipped on the date they said it would be and arrived well packaged and still with green leaves. It is planted in my yard and doing well so far after 2 weeks. I used to have a fringetree in my previous backyard and I am really excited to see this one grow and bloom in the future. I will definitely be ordering from this company again!

    Beautiful beyond words. These items are well priced, even with the understandably high shipping, but they are so worth it, sustainably packaged relatively large plants, beautiful and healthy.

    Fringe Tree

    Posted by Laura Elder on Dec 26th 2019

    As always everything I order arrived healthy and just as described. I do wish this tree was offered in a larger size. I have a fringe tree already, and it is a head turner when in bloom. People always stop to ask what is that beautiful tree!? It's a shame more people haven't heard of this beautiful native! I'm am beyond thrilled to be able to order natives plants from this site!! I've tried other online shopping and never do they stand up to Mail Order Natives!

    I have made two purchases of trees from Mail Order Natives and in both cases the plants arrived healthy, extremely well packaged and ready to plant. I am very happy with this on-line nursery.

    very satisfied

    I purchased two plants which came fast and in very good condition, well developed root ball. I planted them as soon as arrived and didn't show any sign of stress before or after. By the way, even thou this is a native plant, is not that easy to find. Can't wait to see them grow and bloom!
