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. 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.

Extremely pleased

As one reviewer noted, these do take quite a while to establish. Mine definitely looked very sad for months, until one day they absolutely sprang to life. They love the full sun, high heat spot they're in. When everything else in the garden is drooping from the heat, these just glow. They have also filled out beautifully and have a wonderful shape to them. I avoid over watering the area they're in and they are thriving.

Beautifully healthy

Having ordered these bare root, they did certainly take a a while to get going. However, now that they have, they are incredibly healthy and seem to grow an inch or more every day. In this extremely humid and hot hot hot weather, they are the one plant that never droops or seems tired. I barely water them and they sit in direct sun all day. Also love the cooling, silver-y colour their leaves add to the borders.

Fragrant and pretty

I am so happy. This sage has grown amazing from bareroot( which I usually kill) this is only the first season. I did plant in full sun about 8 or more hours a day. I potted it and I think I may place it in the ground next summer. I am pleased beyond words. I have ordered collections for several pots 2 summers now as well, and they too are gorgeous. WFFs make me look like I know what I’m doing. Thank you. !!!

Blue Jean Baby

I ordered 8 Perovskia Blue Jean Baby for planting last September, 2018. They filled the space beautifully and the color looks spectacular lasting several months. Could not be happier.

White Flower Farm

I had high hopes for this smaller Russian Sage but after being in the ground for over two months the plants are barely alive. They came bare root and took a long time to leaf out at all. These are expensive plants and I’m not confident at all that they will make it. Very disappointed. ☹️

Plants that ship bareroot do take some time to get established and all perennial plant material is guaranteed for a full year Ann. Please be patient with the Perovskia. If the plants fail to grow as expected by the end of the season please contact Customer Service:

Plant Perovskia in full sun and well-drained soil. Drought tolerant.

Leave the silvery stems standing over winter; prune back to just 8–12″ in early spring. In cold-winter climates, plants may be killed back to the ground but will resprout.
