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.

A Real Beauty

I have purchased many plants from various nurseries and I have never had a better experience than with White Flower Farms. The packing was exceptional, not one part of the plant was damaged. Amazing. As for the plant, it is fabulously beautiful from anywhere in the room. The most interesting houseplant I have.

Healthy, pretty and a great price!

The plant came perfectly packed, healthy and fully in tact. It is gorgeous. Wish there was a way to leave a picture. What I received looks exactly like whats pictured. Measuring from the base of the plant, the tallest leaves were 13” and 14” tall. I ordered it in the basket knowing I was going to put it in a different container. I saw this plant on another website I order from and this was half the cost of theirs. Very happy!

Gorgeous Plant

With the cold weather I had to wait a few weeks for the shipment of this beauty, but it was well worth the wait. It was packaged very well with a small heat pack that was still warm upon receipt. It is lush and full with no bad leaves. I will definitely order from White Flower Farm again. :-)

Best plant ever!

This is a very difficult plant to find. Searched all over our town for it. Couldn’t find one so ordered online. Such a beautiful plant! Beautiful markings on the leaves. Seems easy to grow. The best part is that it folds up in the evening and folds back out in the morning! Everyone that sees this plant wants one too!!

Latin Name Pronunciation: kah-lah-thee'uh


Also known as Zebra Plant, the best foliage color is achieved in bright, indirect light. High humidity is preferred (see below for ways to increase humidity around your plant). Keep potting mix evenly moist.

Humidity: Most houseplants are native to tropical or subtropical regions of the world, where relative humidity is typically very high. They suffer in the dry air produced by furnaces and woodstoves. The best way to increase the humidity around your plants is to run a humidifier nearby. You can also set plants in trays filled with pebbles or gravel. Add water to a level just below the tops of the pebbles (if the potting mix in the pots comes in contact with the water, the mix will draw water into the pot, which will cause the mix to become saturated, eventually leading to rot). Refill trays frequently to replace water lost through evaporation.


Light/Watering: Grow in partial shade to shade and water when the top inch of soil is dry.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Use a well-drained potting mix and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly throughout the growing season (April to September).

End-of-Season Care: In all but the mildest winter climates (plants are hardy to Zone 11 [40°F]), bring plants indoors before frost and overwinter in bright indirect light.
