These native plants are grown in a wholesale restoration nursery, not in a retail nursery. Unlike plants grown for showiness at a retail nursery, these plants are grown for habitat restoration and are often trimmed prior to shipment to conserve water. This does not damage the plants. They are hardy natives. If your shipment should be upturned by UPS, do not discard plants that have come out of their pots! They are still viable. We are not responsible for damage to plants caused in transit.
Most customers will receive plants that have green leaves. However, some customers may receive plants that lack leaves due to trimming or dormancy.
By placing an order, you agree to accept plants that are not showy, but have viable roots and will grow to become future monarch habitat with the proper care.
