These plants are shipped to you either from my nursery or my supplier. We ship only on Monday - Wednesday as we need to insure that the plants arrive in good condition.
The plants are trimmed and ready for planting and will usually take a few weeks to re-grow. I recommend, if you are ordering bare root, to order early in the season so you can enjoy the plant all summer.
Water Hyacinths, Water Lettuce, Frog bit are not trimmed and are shipped whole.
