You can request
a “Hold Order” for Hardy Perennials and we will ship them
when it’s planting time in your zone. Otherwise, Hardy
Perennials can be kept in a cool or cold spot like an unheated
garage, cool cellar or outbuilding. Cover the pot and soil
with insulating material (burlap, clean rags, newspaper) and
check the soil every 2-3 weeks to make sure it doesn’t dry
out completely. In the spring, plant as soon as the ground
is open and no longer frozen. Dormant plants can endure
freezing temperatures in the spring as long as the plant
remains dormant without any green buds.
Citron ‘Buddha’s Hand’ (Citrus medica hybrid)
This cultivar of the citron is the most exotic and unusual container fruit we grow. The oldest known citrus in cultivation, it produces a large fruit with long protruding fingers and a thick rind. The fruit is nearly absent of pulp. The rind, however, is often candied and somewhat sweet. It makes the best, most fragrant lemon zest for all types of cooking.
Hardy to Zone 9 and higher for outdoors.
Full sun, grows to 1-3' in container, minimum
temperature 50°, intermittent bloomer.
