How Are Your Plants Grown?

Our container grown perennials and shrubs are grown in our climate-controlled greenhouses in Western Michigan. They have been in a cool greenhouse and can withstand some light frost (30-32 degrees F.) We try to keep our plants cool so they can better adjust to their new outdoor environment, especially early in the season.

Most plants can be shipped to all 48 states, however, a few plants are restricted and cannot be shipped to certain states. Please check the product page for any relevant restrictions for that plant.
