Ordering from Annie’s Annuals & Perennials
I realized today that I hadn’t posted about my WONDERFUL experience with Annie’s Annuals & Perennials. In late January they had a one-day special so I decided to see if they had any plants I couldn’t live without (I found quite a few). Not only do they have a unique/vast selection but they also have a “Wish List” so you can get an e-mail when out of stock plants become available.
If you don’t have their catalog or haven’t ordered from Annie’s Annuals & Perennials, you are missing out. I don’t think I can explain it better than the bio on their site:
“Specializing in rare and unusual annual & perennial plants, including cottage garden heirlooms & hard to find California native wildflowers.”
My Annie’s Annuals & Perennials order:
- Asphodelus albus “White Asphodel” (sun)
- Claytonia sibirica “Candyflower” (shade)
- Delphinium elatum ‘Double Innocence’ (sun)
- Dianthus arenarius (sun/part shade)
- Digitalis ferruginea ‘Yellow Herald’ (sun/bright shade)
- Fragaria vesca ‘Golden Alexandria’ (sun/part shade)
- Geranium pyrenaicum ‘Bill Wallis’ (sun/part shade)
- Gladiolus tristis (sun/part shade)
- Scabiosa caucasica ‘Perfecta Alba’ (sun)
They even let me request a delayed shipping date so the ground would be ready for planting. I got my order last week and was pleasantly surprised by the packaging and the condition of the plants. The soil/roots for each plant was wrapped in moist paper, plastic and then set in a plastic pot. The pots were then placed in a cardboard spacer in the shipping box.
I would order from Annie’s again in a heartbeat. In my opinion, the quality of plants I received is worth paying for shipping every time. Thanks Annie’s!
Sounds like they are a great company, too bad I am in Canada!
Hi, I love Annie’s but their shipping is WAY too high for me….Her website is so pretty and colorful too.
I love the catalog and all the ideas for gardening – is this geared for California or would most of the flowers survive the summer Arizona heat?
