Dirca palustris

Leatherwood or Dirca palustris is one of our favorite native plants and we finally have alot of them at the nursery.  It blooms quite early and casn take moist soil and shade. Native Americans called it wicopy and used it for rope as it is very strong.  They don't transplant well, root well from cuttings or grow easily from seed so they are hard to come by
