- SHIPSBeginning the first week of March, after your last frost date. If you want your plants earlier, (because you’re a risk-taker or have a greenhouse, for example), just email us and we’re happy to accommodate
- ZONEGrows everywhere in the USA (annual, zones 2-11)
- INCLUDES15 plants in 2.5" pots, 3 each of Flying Saucer Morning Glory, Japanese Indigo, Nasturtium Cream Troika, Chamomile, Blue Glitter Eryngium
Flying Saucer Morning Glory vines have a unique pentagon shape and blue stripes on their petals that look drawn-on with colored pencils. Harvest Japanese Indigo leaves, stick them in a blender, and you've got a vibrant dye. Nasturtium Cream Troika petals are creamy yellow with a startling red paint splatter at the center, with variegated lobe shaped foliage. Chamomile resembles what a kid draws when you ask them to draw a flower, and for that, they are the sweetest little things. Blue Glitter Eryngium's blue flowers are spiky, and will keep their color when dried for years.
Includes 15 young plants, 3 of each of these five varieties, for you to grow the garden of your dreams: Flying Saucer Morning Glory, Japanese Indigo, Nasturtium Cream Troika, Chamomile, Blue Glitter Eryngium.

How to Plant
Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water.
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, in well draining soil.
When to Plant
Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the spring.
When to Expect Blooms
All summer long.
Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick the flowers regularly (Bring the flowers in! Make bouquets! Have fun!) to encourage more blooms. And ask us any questions along the way.
Provide support like a trellis or fence for the morning glory to wind up - it's a climber!
