Davidia involucrata 'Kylee's Columnar'

This is another Davidia introduction from Crispin Silva of Crispin's Creations Nursery. Selected for it's columnar form it also has the advantage of blooming at a young age often even before they are potted up from the plug tray!

The Next Step!

The next step in our Wisteria propagation process. After three weeks on the callus bed the grafted plants are potted up into liner pots. The trouble with mature stock plants is that a lot of the wood is full of flower buds! We have to cut these flower buds off before they open so that a second shoot can being growing. If we don't remove the flowers the plants will "flower themselves to death"!!
