Pawpaw (asimina triloba) starter tree


Pawpaw (asimina triloba) starter tree. Pawpaw is a unique tropical tree that grows throughout the southeastern US. In the wild, it prefers moist woods and will produce small colonies by spreading runners (rhizomes) Does well in medium to moist soils in sunny to partially shady spots. To be able to produce fruit it needs a separate tree that has not been produced by rhizomes. It is the only host for zebra swallowtail butterflies. A rather slow growing tree that usually grows under a foot a year and won’t start producing flowers till they are around 7 years old.

These are up and growing for the 2022 season. We keep our plants outside to coincide with the natural season here in Michigan and do not treat them with anything as they are for pollinator gardens. They are one year old plants that are ready to be planted.

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed .
