Re: Arnold Arboretum Broadleaf Evergreens
Message from Daniel East Haven CT
the locality for the Persea palustris at the arboretum is Mt. Cuba Center. i'm assuming it's a wildlife center, not a mountain :-) I'm hopeful about it, and may order up a specimen in Spring. P. palustris is not as hard to find in commerce as some of the other trees i photographed. mail order natives offers it, i think.
The arboretum has several osmanthus americanus, the one pictured being the largest i saw. All of them were in excellent health.
