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.
Persian Carpet Flower (Edithcolea grandis)
An exotic starfish look-alike in the form of a flower awakens the mind to all that is possible in the natural world. Modest in growth, it’s easily maintained on windowsills. During the summer months, the kaleidoscopic flowers form in perfect symmetry on the tips of the bristly trailing stems. This arid land succulent tolerates extreme dryness.
Hardy to Zone 10 and higher for outdoors.
Full or partial sun, grows to 10-12" in container, minimum temperature 40°, blooms in summer and fall.
