Bismarckia nobilis How to do justice to this magnificent palm in just a few words? The Bismarck palm has a full crown of large, silvery blue, circular, fan-shaped leaves and a tall, columnar trunk. The fronds on this palm can get up to 10 feet across. In seedlings and young plants, the leaves are tinged with an unreal purple-red colour. Bismarckia develops fairly quickly into a large and stunning tree that is excellently suited for the subtropical or tropical garden. It is tolerant of drought and a few degrees of frost and wants a place in full sun, such as it enjoys in the highland savannas of its native home of Madagascar. May reach 60 feet in height. Our seeds are collected only from the areas of Madagascar with the best, most silvery blue plants. A winner!

Carya illinoinensis A True American Nut

One of the USA's important agricultural products, pecans are the only major tree nut that can be considered a true American nut. Pecans were first discovered growing in North America and parts of Mexico in the 1600s and were given the name "pecan" based on the Native American word of Algonquin origin, meaning "all nuts requiring a stone to crack." Pecans were favored by pre-colonial residents and served as a major source of food because they were accessible to waterways and easier to shell than other North American nut species. Today, pecans are grown in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas and are enjoyed around the world as the perfect nut. According to U.S. Department of Agriculture statistics, over 346 million pounds of pecans were produced in the U.S. in 1999. In fact, the majority of the world's pecan production, 80 percent, comes from the U.S.
