How We Protect Your Plants For Transit
We sell only bare root plants. We dip the roots in tera-sorb silicone gel to retain ample moisture for transit and surround with plastic. This provides superior protection for plants in transit for up to 12 days.
Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receipt unless weather prohibits. Store in a cool place and keep roots moist and covered with plastic until they can be planted. Water daily for the first week after planting.

Golden Ragwort is a multi-bloom perennial with long stalks and individualized, spiky yellow blossoms.
This plant has not one, but two distinct types of leaves. The first type of leaf occurs around the base of the plant and is flat and round; some would describe this shape as “disclike.” These leaves occur in a single layer and do not climb the plant. Rather, they are arranged in small clusters and from each cluster rises a stalk.
The second type of leaf is the one occurring along the stalk, though not up. These leaves are smaller than the ones around the base and only appear every so often, rather than in semi-organized clusters like the leaves around the base. The shape is more of a “traditional” leaf shape, each leaf is comprised of smaller sections that appear to be miniature leaves themselves.
The stalks of Golden Ragwort are hairless and multi-pronged, with blossoms blooming at the end of each healthy branch.
Yellow blossoms reminiscent of daisies are comprised of a fluffy middle section and an array of petals that radiate outwards barring damage or misgrowth.
When the outer florets (petals) are no longer viable, they are replaced by small purple pieces that are then removed and distributed by wind, thereby spreading the Golden Ragwort seed.
Golden Ragwort roots are short but spread both vertically and horizontally, making this plant a favored choice among landscapers and other plant aficionados for groundcover or simply covering a solid area with attractive vegetation.
