From:Las Cruces, NM Region: Southwest Topic: Trees Title: Smarty Plants on Texas Madrone Answered by: Nan Hampton
Hello, where can one acquire the Texas Madrone for planting?
Visit the National Suppliers Directory on the Wildflower Center webpage where you can find lists of nurseries or seed companies in your area that specialize in native plants. Some of the nurseries will have web addresses where you can check online to see if they carry what you want. Others will have telephone numbers and/or e-mail addresses for contacting. You may or may not be able to easily find the Texas madrone (Arbutus xalapensis) commercially because it is temperamental to propagate and difficult to transplant from the wild. However, doing a quick preliminary search for nurseries in the Southwest I found Natives of Texas near Kerrville, Texas that advertises they "specialize in Texas native plants, with an emphasis on madrones, a beautiful Texas native tree".
