CEROCARPUS LEDIFOLIUS (Curl Leaf Mountain Mahogany)

(1 customer review)


Native to the Great Basin this is an outstanding evergreen shrub-small tree 6ft. to 15ft., usually less and it can be held at any height with pruning. It has thin grey-green leaves with beautiful bark. It has the ability to fix nitrogen and generally considered of great value in re-vegetation. It survives with very little water but can also do well in a typical garden water schedule. It is extremely cold hardy, a rarity for a broadleaf evergreen. It can be used as a stand-alone specimen, in a grouping or even as a hedge!

  1. Austin Saunders

    Somewhat unbelievable that shipping is free. Hard to find natives, came in good condition and all three are doing well, one that got some morning shade grew quite a bit, other two didn’t grow much, but this plant is famously slow growing(whole reason for the common name mountain mahogany) so maybe with a little shade(but not much) at a young age it might speed the growth process. So far completely evergreen through winters (coldest temps experienced-26F). Great value.
