Shipping Note:

The type of product you order or the weather in our area or yours may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible. Large orders may be shipped in more than one package.

Bare-root perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and success in your garden. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window.
In all cases, we choose the fastest, most efficient way to send your order.

For trees and other oversize items, we do not ship to PO boxes and it will be delivered via FedEx Home delivery.
After you place your order you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate.

You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate.

At any time after you place your order you can check your order status on our website using your email or the account number found in your order confirmation email.

Please note that we cannot ship outside of the 48 contiguous states.

First year success!

Purchased 9 plants and 7 survived planting. Reached about 3 ft tall this first year. Bloomed profusely all summer. Required little care or attention. Planted, watered occasionally and looked great. Planted on the back side of a fence so hoping next year they grow bigger and stronger but very pleased with my purchase. Will be buying more.

The Maximilian perennial sunflowers have more than flourished. I have no complaints. The bees and butterflies love them. They were my most successful plants this year.
