Lemon Surprise Draecena

With its bladelike leaves and variegated colors, this houseplant is perfect for bringing a cheery pop of green to even the most shadowy spots in your home. Each long leaf is deep green in color with a lemon trim and an edge of white. All together, the Lemon Surprise Draecena plant can grow up to 3' tall, although you can prune to keep it shorter if you prefer. It's incredibly easy to care for—just water it whenever the soil dries out, and make sure not to oversaturate. During the colder months, keep it in an area with a little more indirect sunlight to make up for the shorter days. This will keep it healthy and growing. This is a great gift for apartment dwellers with fewer windows. Finally, they won't need to keep all their plants crowded around the windowsill, they can bring growing, refreshing color further into their aparment.

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.

Trees and other oversize items cannot be shipped to PO boxes.

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 and tracking information.
