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
These hops trees arrived in excellent condition, pretty tall, with plenty of roots. I planted them in a well drained raised bed, knowing that they need fast drainage. on either side of another one I'd already planted in the middle. I'm adding to my hoptrees, because the giant swallowtails laid so many eggs on the one I have, need more. Not a showy plant, but if you're a butterfly lover, this one is a must - tiger swallowtails will sometimes lay their eggs on it, too.
The hoptree arrived in good shape with the root ball wrapped in plastic and still moist on the inside. Thanks a lot.
Best trees I have ever received in the mail. Very healthy looking & full of nice leaves. Well packaged. WIll definitely order more plants from this company.
I have a full sun steep slope on clay that I'm trying to cover quickly with shrubs and trees (preferably natives for my zone). I picked hoptree because of its fast growth, unusual leaves, drought tolerance, neat seed display and the fact that it is a rare host plant for the largest native USA swallowtail butterfly. MailOrderNatives sent a beautiful in-leaf sapling nearing 3 feet tall! I couldn't be happier and the little guy is doing very well in his new home!
Trees arrived looking very healthy
Happy with the Pawpaw trees and they were packed nicely and arrived in timely manner.
My hop tree was shipped on the day I requested. It arrived in very good shape and was pretty large. It fact, it even had a few seed pods on it!!
Beautiful health...tree....Excited for the addition to my gardens
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.
