From Question and Answer Forums: What are others saying about this plant?
I think the spelling is correct. It is an outstanding midsized shrub that we use quite often in the shade. Has nice spring flowers, attractive foliage and great fall color. We have purchased them from Klynn Nursery. I just finished reading the article in American Nurseryman, so I wanted to see what the site was all about. I think this is going to be a fantastic tool and I plan to use it very often. I would love to help in any way. Talk to you soon.
How is your lindera obtusiloba performing so far Ive attempted to grow it from seed on at least 4 different occasions but apparently the seed was never collected at the fresh stage . Ive had lindera angustifolia growing in my garden for the last 10 years or so and the Fall color is very nice . So because MY lindera angustifolia seed is very fresh , it does propagate from seed .
I live in Seattle, WA and am trying to locate a lindera obtusiloba Japanese Spicebush plant. Can you help
Is there a local nursery that carries this shrub NKy or Cinti area
