Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington.


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.

Five stars for adding drama

These are wonderful for adding drama to a mixed bed or in pots. Requires daily watering for best results or plant near a bog or water feature which is where I used mine this year. I have it submersed in a pond and it's doing great. I've purchased this for the past 5 years and the last two from White Flower Farm whose were the best hands down. i highly recommended this plant to anyone looking for a dramatic annual for your garden .

Only One

Only one of my plants from WWF (and I have many) have brought strangers to my front door asking what kind of plant it was. Cyperus Papyrus "King Tut" It's not winter hardy, so I treat it like an annual. It still has a permanent place in a wet spot of my yard.
