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.

Eve Krupka from Martinsville
I purchased the Philadelphus Snow White Sensation in September of 2014. The most important reason that I bought it was for its scent as described in the ad. The shrub survived the winter and flowered during the summer of 2015 abundantly. However, the promise of the wonderful scent did not materialize. In fact, the scent was almost nonexistent, which was a big letdown. I would like to get a refund for this purchase, or at least credit on another order. If there is any way that I could return this shrub, I would do it gladly.

I ordered three of these plants in spring 2016. They didn't look like much when they arrived, but two out of the three are thriving - no small feat, considering I am in Zone 4 and these are a Zone 5. I didn't expect them to do much their first year, but the two that made it have clusters of beautiful blossoms and plenty of delicate, but healthy-looking new growth.

These were tiny twigs when they arrived and still dormant but I planted them without any special effort - no amemdments or stimulators or potting soil, just plain dirt. They didn't get very big - maybe 18 inches tall so far - but even so they had a substantial number of very pretty white flowers and andlook quite healthy. The scent wasn't as strong as I expected but I think it might be better as the plants mature. I have to say that the only time I had an issue with White Foundlower I found getting through quite challenging but the issue was favorably resolved pretty quickly once I did.

I purchased two plants in 2009. They have developed into 5 foot tall shrubs and look wonderful, healthy and full despite growing in zone 4. The flowers are truly lovely and incredibly fragrant. They are planted on either side of stone steps leading from our house, providing a living gateway to the outdoors. These are without a doubt the best mock oranges ever!

I am so thrilled with your customer service, and the way you packaged the plants, excellent. I had ordered from another nursery several years ago and was so disappointed when I received the plants and the condition they were in. I took a chance in ordering from your company, happy that I did will not use any other nursery than you in the future. Thank You.
