This tree's origin is unknown, but most likely imported long ago from Japan. Phenomenally small leaf, highly ramified and incredible trunk, there might not be a better Elaeagnus of this medium,  Chuhin size, in North America. There might not be another Elaeagnus of this quality, period. Cultivated for 12 years, 11 of the 12 years at Mirai, and continually maintained at the highest level of refinement. This strong, beautiful tree is show worthy in every way. Container is modern Japanese, but the patina is incredibly beautiful, and shows age that complements the tree well.

* All shipping charges on trees reflect Covered Wagon prices. Please ensure your cart only has trees prior to checkout. Any non-tree items should be purchased on a separate transaction to avoid shipping errors in the checkout process.

The Covered Wagon will be leaving Oregon on Wednesday, September 28th and making predetermined stops where clients can meet us to pick-up their tree purchases. The tentative stopping points for the Covered Wagon include Boise, ID - Cheyenne, WY - Omaha, NE - Des Moines, IA - Chicago, IL, Cleveland, OH - Harrisburg, PA - New Jersey and New York.  Final Covered Wagon destination spots will be released once tree sales are finalized but in general do not deviate far from the above route. 

A separate Covered Wagon trip to California will be in November with stops in the Bay Area and LA metro area likely planned. 

If your tree is available for common carrier shipment or if you would like to pick up your tree at Mirai, we will refund/bill you the difference on shipping costs once it is arranged.

If you are a student wanting to keep your tree on-site for future classes, or a client needing tree care until alternative tree delivery options are arranged, we offer boarding here at Mirai at the rate of $35 per month.

Please email after purchase to confirm your shipping needs.
