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.

Again I was supposed to receive 3 and I only got 2. The 2 I got looked very healthy though and I hope they turn out as beautiful.

I received the pink variety, and although I loved the flower, it became at least 5 feet tall. I will keep it, but will need to relocate it to fit into the space it needs.
