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.
Lemon ‘Meyer’ (Citrus limon)
An heirloom dwarf lemon with delicious golden-yellow fruit, Meyer Lemon makes a fine potted plant and it’s the hardiest lemon for cool temperatures. The fruit is more flavorful than store-bought lemons and is prized by chefs. It bears heavily at a young age, flowering and fruiting year-round. Brought into the U.S. at the turn of the century from China, it is thought to be a hybrid between a lemon and an orange.
Hardy to Zone 9 and higher for outdoors.
Full sun, grows to 1-3’ in container, minimum temperature indoors 50°.
I bought this lemon tree 3 years ago and my plant is still thriving! I have more lemons than I know what to do with! I love this tree!
Reliable Indoor Citrus
I got this plant years ago from Logees. It has survived numerous moves, neglect, less-than-ideal conditions especially during indoor winters -- yet it still continues to thrive and produce fruit. Gets a little buggy sometimes in winter, but a single application of organic insecticidal soap spray does the trick nicely. What a workhorse of a citrus plant!
