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.

Heat Tolerance, at last!!!

I wish to get the word out about this variety!! Here in the South, most all fuchsias are treated and grown as short seasonal annuals. While pert-near all varieties LOVE our long springtimes, our summers prove deadly for most. Most fanciers are familiar with F. x 'Dark Eyes', and it's more diminuative look alike F. x 'Dollar Princess.' These two are grown and sold by the thousands here, with the Princess being just a tad more heat tolerant. (Read: longer lasting.) But, it's a rarity to see either of these beauties still alive for Indian Summer. The only other variety found in some of the better nurseries is F.x 'Gartenmeister Bondstedt.' This heirloom hybrid can live through our brutal heat with a bit of care, but it does tend to take a blooming break in high summer, returning to full glory in order to get our Hummers off to a great start for their autumnal migrations. I've grown 'Eruption' for 2 full seasons. It has proven even MORE heat tolerant than 'Gartenmeister!!' They tend to slow down during the hottest months, but don't really even quit producing color. I grow mine in baskets hanging from one of our Mimosa Trees. Thank you, White's for continuing to offer this hard to find jewel. And Southern Gardeners might wish to take note!!

Bloomed Inside All Winter!

In Spring 2018 I ordered three fuchsias from White Flower Farm. I had little experience with fuchsias and didn't know if I even could keep them alive. I was most pleased with "Eruption". It bloomed well in a hanging basket with a few hours of morning sun and shade the rest of the day in summer 2018. I doubted I could keep it alive inside during the winter but took it in before cold night temperatures would have killed it. I hung the basket just as it was, with both fuchsia and some coleus in it, from a hook in my bathroom ceiling just to the side of a rather small window with SSE exposure. This is a small room in an apt. dating back to the mid-1960s, nothing special about it, but the light and humidity must have suited "Eruption" because it never stopped blooming all winter! It has continued blooming without interruption after I moved it back outside in June 2019. It isn't a large plant (probably should have been fertilized more regularly) but its performance has been outstanding with continuous blooms for a year.

In most parts of the country, Fuchsias perform best in partial shade and moist but well-drained soil. Here at our nursery in Morris, though, they also grow well in full sun.

Most of the Fuchsias we offer are annuals (hardy to Zone 9 [20°]). In all but the mildest winter climates, bring plants indoors before frost and overwinter in a sunny window in a cool room. Set back outdoors after the danger of frost has passed in spring.

We also offer varieties from the species known as Hardy Fuchsia (F. magellanica). These robust varieties can be overwintered outdoors in Zone 6 if mulched heavily. They make a good informal hedge in mild climates, but die back like perennials in cooler areas of the country, such as Zone 6.
