Please read before ordering:

Yangmei note: Yangmei plants are known to be hard to establish when young. Their survival rates may vary. We have very limited experience with growing yangmei in the U.S. The potted seedlings sold here are about 9 months old and they are 3 to 5 inches tall. They germinated last summer and spent the winter outside in Davis, CA. We have good results growing them in a potting mix containing equal parts sand (or red lava rock fines), perlite, and peat moss. The pH should be a bit below 7, maybe 6.5. They need to be fertilized with macro and micro elements, and they like iron a lot. There is anecdotal evidence that they may be sensitive to too much phosphorus. This species is dioecious. A DNA test was run on each seedling to determine the sex.

Services

Yangmei (Morella rubra) sexing

This service is for gardeners with yangmei seedlings that have not yet bloomed.

We have developed a DNA test to determine the sex of your yangmei seedlings. Label your plants and leaf samples with corresponding IDs, then mail in your leaves. You will receive test results by email within 5 business days of us receiving your leaves. For the test, we need just one leaf from each plant. After your order, we will send you an email with collection and mailing instructions within a business day.

Service Price (USD)
Yangmei DNA test to determine male/female for 10 plants or samples $200

If you have a smaller number of samples, email us for pricing.
