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.

Big Pud Show from Fayetteville, AR
I bought three and put them in the back of a bed that received morning shade and afternoon sun. We had an especially hot and dry summer. The plants wilted daily in the heat (they were next to a brick wall) but bounced right back once it cooled off. Wonderful large bushy habit with lots of flowers and attracted hummingbirds and butterflies in profusion. Grew pretty large; close to three feet high and wide. A great choice if you want to fill in a large areas for a season.

I planted three Senorita Rosalitas in April 2012 on a slope with average soil. My favorite plant of the year! They were blooming when I set them out and they were covered in continuous, showy blossoms in my zone 8a garden until mid-November. They were bushy and about 3 feet in height, and much enjoyed by the butterflies and bees. Can't wait to enjoy them again this year!
Gerry the Plant Lady from Levittown, New York (Long Island)
Purchased in 2013 and was so successful bought them again 2014. Plan on buying every year. Small plants to start off but don't let that fool you.Mine have grown to at least 4 ft.Have bought 6 for a large open space in my border and by the middle of the summer they are growing like gangbusters. Not affected by heat or dry weather. Make quite a show. They are so full I can't even see the ground under them.
Judi from Northern illinois
Needed a stocky, taller bushy plant to stand upright among sweet potato vines in 30 foot planter. We are two days past summer solstice and plants are still only 18" tall. The purple/pink color is attractive and could be more dynamic if it reached projected height.
Will collect 2013 seeds for 2014 indoor early start. Need a min of 10 plants for design.

Trouble-free in full sun and average garden soil. Tolerates drought. In the South, cut plants back by at least ⅓ in late July or early August to produce fresh stems and new flower heads. Plants self-sow abundantly; expect an ample crop of seedlings next spring. Keep or relocate those you want and weed out the rest. A true annual-plants eventually die after flowering.
