We spent most of the day at Anniston Army Depot still collecting seed. We got seed from Short-leafed Pine, Pinus echinata, a plant I like a lot for the Washington, DC area; there are two in the National Grove of State Trees (they are the state tree of Arkansas) and they have been beautiful for the last four years. This is a timber tree in the south but seems like it would be a good landscape specimen in the warmer parts of Zone 7.
We also collected an unknown Holly, that we tentatively believe to be Ilex longipes. It is a beautiufl deciduous plant with large, shiny, longstemmed, red berries. Beautiful.
