    Such a lovely tree, and wonderful for song birds. I wish more people planted our beautiful native trees and shrubs.

    The little tree arrived in excellent condition and health. I planted it right away. And the leaves have turned the gorgeous fall colors of soft pink, soft red and yellow and orange. I had read this is a tree to admire all seasons, for the flowers, thre fruit, the shape and the fall colors ! Certainly I can see how true that is!! Thank you mail order natives!!!

    It shipped on the day I requested and was well packaged with no shipping damage. It was also taller than I expected. Very happy!

    Have always wanted this tree and it arrived in excellent shape and leafed out. In a sheltered spot and will plant when our local trees begin to leaf out. Will definitely order again from this unique nursery.

    Arrived leafed out and in excellent shape with substantial root system, I was impressed. Will plant in about 10 days when local trees leaf out.

    I was very happy with the plants I received. They were in great condition. The root ball stayed together during planting. I plan on buying more plants from Mail Order Natives!
