Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

Australian Finger Lime is a unique fruit-producing evergreen shrub with sparse thorns and finger sized fruits with pearl-like pulp that can begin harvesting in fall.  The fragrant pink and white flowers bloom in winter.  The fruits mature to a pale yellow when fully ripe, and the pulp pearls have a juicy burst that tastes similar to key lime.  Grows best in full sun and sandy to loamy well-drained acidic soils.  Cannot tolerate frost.  Doesn't ripen well off the tree, so only pick when at ripeness wanted. Avoid getting oil from the rind on the pearls, as it can affect taste.

Dwarf Rootstalk selections are sold in GA ONLY.
