    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!

    Fringe Tree

    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!

    I think I have finally found the plant I am looking for. It is looking stressed but OK. It is planted and protected. Will see how the winter goes

    It is obviously to early for me to review the fringe tree I purchased since I have only had it a couple of weeks. It is growing fine and looks very healthy. What I do want to review is this company. I have been purchasing plants on line for years. This is the best shipping I have ever received. The tree was packaged with care and arrived intact and in excellent condition. I am thrilled with Mail order Natives and will use them many times in the future.
