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.

Latin Name Pronunciation: plek-tran'-thus

This unfussy genus in the Mint family is native from Africa to Asia and the Pacific Islands. The varied species can be grown as houseplants, outdoor annuals, or as perennials in zones 9-11. They are vigorous growers in full sun or partial shade (required in warm inland areas of the West) with some being shade tolerant. Grow in organically rich, evenly moist soil. Plants should not be allowed to dry out, but can tolerate brief periods of drought. Pinch as needed to keep bushy and compact in annual containers or beds.

Plectranthus Velvet™ Lady can be wintered over indoors where it makes an attractive houseplant, along with P. 'Emerald Lace.' Provide bright indirect light and day and night temperatures of 50-80°F year round. Water when the top 1" of the potting mix is dry to the touch. Withhold fertilizer while your plant is in flower during the short days of the year. After flowering has finished, feed every 2 weeks with a water-soluble fertilizer that is lower in phosphorus (such as 20-10-20) mixed at ½ strength. Keep your plant compact by occasionally pinching off the tips of new shoots. This allows side branches to develop. Cut off flower stalks when their blooms have faded. About once a year, repot into a larger container (one that is 1-2" wider than the current one), using a well-drained potting mix.
