They will flush out in Spring.We cannot ship certain plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by the Department of Agriculture.

This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
