We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

SALE plants may require additional freight payment

Xeriscaping - Basic principles of Water Wise Landscaping
  1. Planning and Design
    Take the time to plan your design before you start to plant. Create different water use zones and
    allocate the water where it will most directly contribute to the beauty & comfort of your home.
  2. Create Practical Turf Areas:
    Limit the size of lawn areas and use native grasses as much as possible. Buffalo Grass is an excellent
    drought-tolerant alternative to thirsty Kentucky Blue Grass.
  3. Use Appropriate Plants:
    Use xeric plants for hot, dry south and west facing areas. Use plants that like more moisture along
    north and east facing slopes and walls. Don't mix plants with high and low watering needs in the same planting area.
  4. Improve the Soil:
    Add organic matter in the form of compost whenever you plant. This helps the soil hold extra moisture.
  5. Use Mulches:
    By covering the soil's surface with some type of mulch, you help retain valuable soil moisture.
    Mulching also helps capture rainwater by allowing hard rains to soak into the soil instead of running off
    into the street and drainage areas.
  6. Irrigate Efficiently:
    Don't over-water. Use soaker hoses and drip irrigation to water deeply & encourage deep root growth.
  7. Capture Rain and Snow Run Off
    Use rain barrels and cisterns to capture water draining off roofs. Run-off from paved areas can be
    directed back onto the landscape to water trees, shrubs and flower beds.
  8. Maintain Your Landscape and Garden Properly:Keep irrigation systems running properly.
    Avoid the lush, thirsty plant growth that results.
