The leathery, blue-green basal leaves of this Sea Holly have prominent white margins (when nights are cool, the margins of new leaves are pink). In summer, the distinctive, spiny blue-violet flowers of 'Jade Frost' appear in clusters on branched stems that are great for cutting. This interesting perennial tolerates heat, drought, and poor soil. Be sure to plant it in well-drained soil and full sun. PP 17,370

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.

Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery.

In for a Penny from Southeast Michigan
See that gorgeous photograph? Another inspiring image from White Flower Farm--which is what made me buy this plant, and three others, for my perennial bed. I had the perfect spot for this plant. Which cost me [$], plus shipping--but I had high expectations.Here's what I got: an unrecognizable plant with three dead leaves (each maybe 1.5 inches long) and one inch of stem with two small leaves on it. In a pot of completely dry, brick-hard soil. I'm tempted just to throw it away, but I'm not inclined to toss [$] (plus shipping) into the trash, so I will plant my one-inch whatever-it-is, fertilize it, and hope that maybe next year, there will be something that might resemble that beautiful picture.You have been warned.
