Product Details




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. 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.

Latin Name Pronunciation: pie-lee'uh 

Several of the many tropical Pilea species are grown for their attractive foliage, although their flowers are of no great interest. Troughs, hanging baskets, and dish gardens display these gems to best advantage.

Light/Watering: Morning sun to light shade outdoors; bright indirect light indoors. Water when top inch of soil is dry to the touch and sparingly in winter.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Moist, well-drained soil. No fertilizer is needed the first few months after planting, then feed at monthly intervals with a water-soluble house plant fertilizer.

Temperature: Day and night temperatures of 60-75°F are fine year round.

Continuing Care: Mist leaves regularly to maintain humidity and pinch to keep the plant bushy.
