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.
Miracle Fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum)
We've been experimenting with Miracle Fruit for a number of years and finally we're able to offer it so others may enjoy it too. The miracle is in the berry. Once you've eaten the small red fruit (about the size of a gumdrop), everything sour eaten afterwards tastes incredibly sweet, including sour citrus. From tropical West Africa, it flowers profusely with fruit setting usually during the summer months in northern climates. Slow growth is normal and for successful growth it must be planted in an acidic soil-mixture of half sphagnum peat moss and half perlite. This plant remains modest in size.
Hardy to Zone 10 and higher for outdoors.
Full sun, grows to 2-3' in container, minimum temperature 60°, intermittent bloomer.
Everything about the shipment showed the Logees was professional and experienced. Since shipping was during cold weather, they even put a heat pack in with my plants to keep them warm in shipping. Instructions, however were for general plants, but online they provided clear specific instructions for Synsepalum dulcificum. Large plantsfor 30$ but none had fruitmaybe not unusual for January though. This was my first time buying from them but I will definitely choose Logees again if I want to gaurantee a quality delivery and plant.

Just had my first fruit!
I bought my plant over the summer and just tried my first fruit. It really was true! I was able to bite a slice of lemon and it tastes just like lemonade! I cant wait for my next fruit which is just starting to turn red.
