One hundred plus a few extra native Maine speckled or gray alder tree catkins that look like tiny pine cones. These were collected from the trees here at our farm and have not been sprayed or treated in any way. Just natural catkins.
Most of these woody, cone-like catkins are still attached to the ends of twigs. They are great for crafts, jewelry making, potpourri, wreaths, or any purpose requiring a tiny cone.
The catkins measure between 3/8" to 5/8" long, most are about 1/2" in length. They have natural variations in color and shape. These are the female catkins of the tree and still contain some of the tiny seeds. These can be shaken out and discarded, or planted to make more alder trees. Birds also like to eat the seeds.
The photos show how many to expect in an order, are shown with a dime for size comparison, are shown in the wild and also there is a view of speckled alder tree trunks.
Due to the fragile nature of alder catkins, they will be shipped in a sturdy box with bubble wrap.
Delivery confirmation is included in shipping for all our listings.
