The typical shipping window for these plants is early April to early December, with exact timing weather-dependent.

See our Shipping Timeframes page for more detail.

When your order ships, you will receive an email from orders@gardenforwildlife.com with tracking information.

Also Includes: Garden design ideas and plant guidance from our pros.

Sizing: At the time of shipment, the shrubs have a developed root mass around 3" in size and emerging foliage around 4-8” high. This collection includes plant species that can thrive in moist to wet conditions. Plant individually as separate focal points in the landscape or as part of a rain garden or pond area. For a colorful privacy screen, plant in a row and provide space to allow for growth. Due to the mature plant size reached after several years, this collection of shrubs is ideal for larger areas and is not suitable for containers.
