We ship plants in pots, as bareroots, or as bulbs, tubers, or rhizomes. Our goal is to ship your plants in a form that minimizes transplant shock, so they can adapt quickly to their new home in your garden.
Perennial Plants: In the beginning of the spring season, some plant varieties (especially later-blooming perennial flowers and grasses) may be dormant, while some may be leafed out and actively growing. In the fall, you may also receive dormant plants or actively growing plants. Each plant has a different growing cycle. A healthy root system is the foundation of a healthy, vibrant plant. You can be confident that all of your new plants have healthy root systems, and are ready to spring to life once they're planted! In fact, sending smaller, dormant plants often helps them grow with a youthful vigor once they're planted.
To determine how your plant will be shipped: On any product page, look under "Planting Information" for the "Ships as" box. It will say "Potted Plant," "Bareroot," "Bulb, Rhizome, Tuber." Indoor blooming bulb kits may say "Planting Kit"
