Our plants ship in 3-inch-deep pots when they are 3-6 inches tall so they can grow to maturity under your green thumb.
This plant goes into dormancy in the fall and winter, so your plant may not have leaves when it arrives but it's still alive and well. In cooler weather, plants go dormant to conserve energy so they're ready to emerge lush and verdant in the spring.
