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.
Weeping Blue Ginger (Dichorisandra pendula)
From Brazil comes a wonderful container plant for the full-to-partial sun exposure. In the tips of the lateral growth, small blue flowers dangle from pendulous stems blooming throughout most of the year. The flower bracts continue to repeat blooms over many months with flowers arriving every day. On sunny days, the flowers will close in the afternoon but remain open all day if it’s cloudy. As plants mature, they have a unique lateral branching habit that gives it an Oriental look. To maintain the plants at the desired height, top prune the rising growth. A member of the spiderwort family, it is easy-to-grow and tolerant of extremes in culture.
Hardy to Zone 10 and higher for outdoors.
Full or partial sun, grows to 2-3' in container, minimum temperature indoors 60°, blooms intermittent.
