*** Most of the new native perennials will say "We have run out of stock for this item or it is out of season" for now, so we don't overpromise. If you would like to purchase one of our native varieties that says this, we urge you to click the "Notify Me when Available" button to get a notification emailed to you when we know we have some available for purchase.
This is because native plants have different growth habits than the other plants we start under grow lights. In fact, most of them need a long cold period in the soil before germinating in the spring or summer, or even a year after being sown. Therefore, it is a bit more challenging to predict when and how many will be ready for pick up in the spring.
