Plants for Spring 2019 Shipping

NOTE: We’re ‘closed’ for shipping for Spring 2019. We’ll update our inventory for Fall 2019 shipping around Summer Solstice. Check back early July, or look for a newsletter update that we’re open again. Thanks for your patience. We’re a tiny nursery and are trying our best to keep up with the interest and excitement over these wonderful plants!

Your order placed now will be collected, carefully packaged and shipped as bare root plants in the early spring when the ground has thawed but the plants haven’t started actively growing. For our climate this is normally sometime between later March and mid-April… We’ll email you shipping confirmation and tracking details as soon as they ship!

TIP: Use the tags above to help filter our offerings by characteristic (ie. click on ‘fruit’ to find any fruit bearing plants we offer, etc.) As we add more and more it is a helpful way to find a plant to fit your goals…

Helianthus Tuberosus

Sunchoke, Jerusalem Artichoke, Sunroot, Earth Apple...  So many names!  This native, incredibly hardy and vigorous growing perennial produces large amounts of high value food that store in the winter down in the soil.  As you can tell from its growth and flowers, this is a perennial member of the sunflower family, but instead of making seeds it makes large tubers down in the earth in great numbers.  These can be left all winter and harvested as needed.  Cooked like potatoes, or fermented, roasted, shredded, etc., they are an excellent perennial tuber with great food value.

We currently offer two varieties.  'Stampede' can reach 12' tall and will be covered in flowers in the fall.  It produces large white tubers.  'Red Fuseau' reaches 8' or so and doesn't flower.  It produces beautiful red/purple, thin skinned tubers.

Site Preference:
Seems to like a lot of sun, but can handle part shade and being an under story element.

Zone 4, perhaps even colder
