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.

Stunning and beautiful! Bloomed a few weeks after I received it! It is so beautiful I can't wait for it to multiply! I planted it in the rock garden boarder outside of my small 35 gallon in ground water garden and posted a picture of it on Facebook and immediately got comments and compliments on it! My mother wants one now! So I will have to send her a bulb once it multiplies! Love it! Wish I could afford a bunch at once so I don't have to wait to have the carpet of orchids! It's been blooming already for over a week, I wish I could post a picture of it! It looks so amazing!

I planted these in a wide shallow container alongside Lewisia. The orchids are absolutely stunning! If they weren't so expensive I would buy them by the dozen. They are truly exceptional.
