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.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Unsurpassed for a blue

It did not bloom the first year. The leaves were huge and I thought it was an alien from another planet. This year ( year 2) it started blooming in May and it doesn't seem like it will stop. The color is like a bluebonnet of Texas ( I am in NH). I will think up some other ways of supporting it next year. The other reviews are accurate, it will bend over in rain. But.... cut off those almost snapped stalks and use as cut flowers. They keep for at least two weeks. I am on day 12 and they are still holding on. Matched with white peonies and silver artemesia...stunning bouquet. It is an excellent back of the border plant.

My daughter gave me these for mothers day. I have gardened for over 30 years. While my daughter who posted earlier called these purple I'd say they were like Elizabeth Taylors eye color not purple but more blue like indigo. She also forgot to mention the most perfuse bloom was late summer into late fall. However, we did see notice some early blue flowering in June, most profuse was in August through October her in Southern PA. We also had alot of rain but they did stay erect w/o support. Would recommend and buying more this year.

Azurea "Dropmore" - Beautiful color

I purchased three plants, and was amazed at how resilient and vigorous the plant grew. I could easily see it spreading and filling an area with it's striking 3 foot tall stalks of blue flowers. My problem was that the stalks were so numerous and so heavy that rains knocked them down and the sprawl was overwhelming. Also, in my area we received nearly 15 months of continual rain (not normal) and portions of the plants rotted. I was constantly cleaning up and trying to stake the flower stalks. Although the color was everything I hoped for, I eventually removed the plant from the site. It was just too much work for me. Good luck to those of you that love it.

Love this plant

This is my favorite garden flower, it has tall sturdy stalks of true blue flowers. It blooms spring through summer in Denver in my xeric garden.

These charming bloomers from the Old World belong to the Forget-Me-Not family and are grown widely for their showy flowers, which start in early summer and continue for a month or better.

Grow in full sun in deep, moisture-retentive but well-drained soil. Plants can be slow to send up new shoots in spring.
