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.
Begonia ‘Palomar Prince’ (Begonia rhizomatous hybrid) This rhizomatous begonia strikes a royal presence when it comes into its fullness. The dark green, deeply cut double-spiraled leaves are dashed with flecks of lighter green and accented by golden veins. Tall sprays of pink flowers appear in winter adding to its grandeur. Like most begonias, this is easily grown in moderate light and adaptable to the home environment. When mature, it can reach over a foot in height. This beauty was created by Mike Kartuz of Vista, CA.
