Product Details

Warm up a porch or patio for autumn with the vivid orange hues of our exclusive Pumpkin Colors Collection, which combines three perennials, one annual, and two different dried botanicals for a seasonal show. The multitudinous Daisy-like blossoms of perennial Chrysanthemum 'Pumpkin Igloo' feature orange petals with bright yellow centers. They blend beautifully with the small but plentiful trumpet-shaped flowers of annual Diascia barberae Juliet Orange, and the cinnamon-orange fronds and red highlights of the perennial Autumn Fern Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance.' Glimmers of gold are provided by the green- and yellow-variegated blades of perennial Ornamental Grass Carex oshimensis 'Eversheen.' Adding interest are the tall spikes of dried cattails and the distinctive round seed heads of dried Lotus pods, both in a rich suede brown. Welcome the autumn season with this colorful container mix, and surround it with pumpkins, cabbages, and other fall favorites. As the fall season nears its end, the perennials may be transplanted into the garden where they will return year after year. 6 plants total and stems of 2 dried elements, quantities of each are listed below.

  • 2 Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance' - Autumn Fern
  • 2 Diascia barberae Juliet Orange
  • 1 Chrysanthemum 'Pumpkin Igloo' (PP 27,001)
  • 1 Ornamental Grass: Carex oshimensis 'Eversheen' (PP 25,938)
  • 12 Dried Cattails & 3 Lotus Pods

Some plants require more space in container gardens than others. To accommodate the 6 plants in this collection, we recommend a container at least 16″ in diameter and 12″ deep.

This collection is shown in our medium Franklin Park Oblong Pot, which is sold separately. Click here to order.

If you choose to overwinter your plants, they will need a little special treatment. Although we can’t guarantee your plants’ successful return next year, here are our best recommendations.

In climates where winter temperatures drop well below freezing, containers should be dismantled in late fall. The Fern, Ornamental Grass and Chrysanthemum are perennial and they can be planted in the ground. Simply discard the Diascia, which is an annual and will not survive in areas below 20°F. In mild-winter climates (Zone 8 and warmer), these plants can be left outdoors in containers.

Shipping

Shipping
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: California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, Arizona, Montana, Mississippi.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

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.

WHEN WE SHIP

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.

OUR GUARANTEE

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.

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.
