Flower orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the flower. We ship our flowers Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied).  

Additional processing time may be required during Sale or Promotional periods due to above average order volume.  We thank you for your patience as we are always working as quickly as possible to pack and ship your orders!


Shipping will be via United States Postal Service within the United States and its outlying territories ONLY.  We do not ship internationally due to agricultural regulations.

We pack our products by hand and take great care to ensure that they arrive at their final destination safely. Your flower will be meticulously wrapped in bubblewrap and tissue papers and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" flowers are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" flowers are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety.

When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Upon receiving your flowers, make sure to remove them from their packaging immediately, and follow the care instructions in the instruction card provided.  Water as needed, making sure to water again only when the soil is completely dry.  Paper florwer are very hardy and will rebound easily with proper care.

Flowers may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year. Sedums such as Cherry Tart and Lime Zinger are dormant in the winter, i.e. they wilt, start dropping leaves, and look dead. It's simply a survival mechanism that help paper florwer stay alive over the cold winter and gear up for warmer days ahead.
