Product Details

Product Details

Enjoy a full season of custom-designed annual container plantings with our annual collection series. We will deliver 3 seasonally inspired collections of fully budded annuals once a month from May through July. Each collection contains 3 select annuals planted in a nursery pot. Simply slip the pot into the terra-cotta planter we send with your first order. 2 subsequent shipments refresh your planter with exclusive annual collections for a full season of colorful displays. You can transplant your prior month's arrangement into a larger container to enjoy for the rest of the season. 3 separate shipments, sent by standard delivery to one address only.

Each series includes 3 collections of 3 plants, plus one 8″ high by 8″ wide terra cotta container with drainage hole and saucer.

  • May—The Color Stream collection will overflow your planter with lovely blossoms of Begonia, Fuchsia, and Sweet Alyssum.
  • June—Enjoy cheery Marguerite Daisies and Fan Flowers with the vibrant Sunburst collection.
  • July—Winged visitors will flock to this Sweet Bliss collection that includes nectar-rich Fuchsia blooms, Begonia, and Sweet Potato Vine.



We try to ship each plant so that it arrives during the first week of each month, however sometimes the plants or the weather at our nursery (or across the country along the shipping route) will cause us to vary from this schedule in order to protect the plants from heat or cold. We will notify you via email at the email address specified on your order when each plant is ready to ship each month.

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, ARKANSAS, ALABAMA.


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. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. 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. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at 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. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Easy Color

A viewer from Fayetteville, NC, USA

I loved these 3 pots pre-planted collection. The last pot arrived in sad condition but a little TLC brought the main plant back to a showy display. The larger plants in the first two pots are still holding on through January on our screened porch. It was nice to move the previous pot into another decorative one I had sitting around and continue to enjoy the color.

The arrangements did not arrive as depicted. Usually at least one type of flower in the arrangement died in the box. That said, the remaining items are long lived. Only the yellow and purple arrangement is completely dead.

Preplanted annual collections

A viewer from Windsor, CT

I had this collection last year but they wisely discontinued the August container which came exactly with in a week or less of the July selection. Other than that rush of the last container the collection was beautiful and I had planted the previous months plants in the garden as they were still lovely. The terracotta planter is of course still usable for more plantings this year. A nice idea would be to offer just the planted nursery pots for people who already have the container or other three plant collections to fit the container.

Growing guide

Growing guide

Choosing a pot and growing mix: In addition to our Annual Collections, most of the plants we offer can be grown, either singly or in combination, in containers. Any container with a drainage hole in the bottom will suit. The growing medium in containers must drain much more quickly than garden soil.

Planting: Begin by adding potting mix to the container until the container is about 3/4 full. (If you use a dry, peat-moss-based mix, you must first moisten it by placing it in a plastic tub or a wheelbarrow and slowly adding water until the mix is moist but not soggy.) Next, set the plants on the mix one by one, spacing them much more closely than you would when planting them in the ground. Put the tallest plants in the center of the container. Surround them with the shorter, mounding plants, and put trailing plants along the edge. When you are pleased with your arrangement, add potting mix to bring the level to within an inch or so of the container's rim and firm lightly. Finally, water thoroughly.

Container care: Plants in containers need special care. They dry out more quickly than plants in the ground; in the heat of summer, you may have to water them daily. Because of the need for frequent watering, nutrients soon wash out the bottom of the pot. To keep annuals growing and flowering, we suggest you water with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer mixed as directed, every other week in summer. (Other plants—bulbs, perennials, and shrubs—need less fertilizer; a half-strength solution applied once a month through August is enough.) Our Vermont Compost Plus is a mix of 10 ingredients, organic and mineral, that will revitalize last year's potting soil and slowly release nutrients throughout the season. All-Bloom Fertilizer is a 15-30-15 product that can be diluted in water and applied regularly during the growing season. Finally, to look their best, all plants in containers need regular grooming. Remove spent flowers regularly and prune vigorous growers to keep them in check.

Preparing for winter: In climates where winter temperatures drop well below freezing, containers should generally be dismantled in fall. Bring tender plants indoors or toss them on the compost heap; plant hardy bulbs, perennials, and shrubs in the ground. Most containers should be emptied of potting mix and stored under cover; only plastic and fiberglass pots can be left out over winter without cracking. In mild-winter climates—say, Zone 8 (10°F) and warmer—hardy plants can generally be left outdoors in containers with little risk either to the plants or to the pots.
