|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.|
Xeriscape Gardening - using Native plants
nature's architectural wonders .
Water conservation has become a very important consideration when gardening in the Western United States. Back in 1981, an environmental planner for the Denver Water Department, Nancy Leavitt, coined the word "Xeriscape" from the Greek word “xeri” for dry, (needing lttle water) and “scape”, meaning view or scene. Together they mean dry scene and embody the principles of water conservation through creative landscaping. Xeriscape is conscious planting of plants compatible with the natural environment. They can be green, beautiful landscapes with plants that are maintained with water efficient practices and heavy mulching. Click on this link for principles of landscaping
