HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

Verdant from Hudson Valley, NY
Enormous umbels that are covered with bees when in bloom in late summer through fall. The stems are dramatic, the leaves large, and they don't need staking or any kind of fuss. This plant will stop every garden visitor in their tracks.
Iris Lefleur from Vermont
Although the plants are often sold not ready for blooming, I feel and have found from experience that the plant stabilizes better if it has time to grow proper roots, these are big tall plants and a proper rooting is essential for its stability in the garden. I have many times received plants that took a second year before bloom only to find they established themselves solidly and weathered storms much better.

This is a plant that I purchased years ago on a whim and it has been self seeding ever since. They bloom (at least 4 feet tall) in the late summer and are gorgeous, stately and great attractors of pollinators. If you leave the bloom, they self seed and you will find them everywhere. The seedlings are easily moved and I have yet to find a place they do not like. The seedlings you plant today, will grow tall and bloom the next year, so once you have the alternate years going, you will have blooms each year. No pests are attacted to these plants and neither are the deer!
Grow in full sun or partial shade and average garden soil. After flowering, the plants die. Allow the seed heads to ripen and seedlings will soon replace the parents.
