During Winter and some early Spring shipments. Some of the plant materials in this shipment are DORMANT. Which means that even thought they have no green top growth, they will grow from dormant buds when temperatures are right. For many perennials, This 'rest period' is ESSENTIAL to good flowering performance in the upcoming season. During Summer/Winter months shipping might be delayed as we only will be shipping on days that we know it wonít harm the plant(s). Monday through Wednesday.
We planted the Sweetbay, with its 2 to 3 inch creamy white blossoms close to our mailbox and in full sun. From late spring to late summer, it became a daily joy to walk the drive and retrieve our mail. You would want to linger for a time to capture the lemon scented Victorian fragrance and to wave to a neighbor passing by. After 10 years of growth it stands as a specimen in the neighborhood.
