Shipping Information

At Direct Native Plants, we take many precautions to make sure your plants will arrive in the best condition possible.

Our perennials are grown in a 4” quart-sized pot. These plants are then cut back to fit our packaging, placed in a protective clamshell container (made from recycled materials), and then shipped to you in a cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Perennials can be shipped in bundles up to 6. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Trees and shrubs are grown in a 7” tall container (referred to as a 1-gallon pot), and depending on the species will be between 12” and 36”. We bag the root section of these plants to prevent them from drying out in transit and ship them in a tall cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Trees and shrubs can be shipped in bundles up to 4. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Direct Native Plants now ships via FedEx. Orders ship out Monday through Wednesday of each week, and depending on how close you are to our nursery in Maryland, shipping will take anywhere from 1-4 business days.

A Thoughtful & Creative Gift Idea for

Gifters Who Want to Give Something Truly Long-Lasting

    What’s the difference between a big box home improvement store gift card and a Direct Native Plants e-gift card?

  • We provide expertise drawing on 23 years selling vibrant native plants that enhance the look, functionality & vitality of local eco-systems. (No generic invasive plant species here that you have to work heavily to maintain!)
  • You’ll receive healthy and strong plants that are home-grown at our facility in Maryland. (We bet no big box store can say they grow their own plants from seedlings!)
  • As an online retailer, we know how to properly package native plants that are ready to go from shipping truck straight to your growing site or landscaping without missing a beat. (You don’t need to drive out and shop around!)

    “I'm loving my new shrubs. They are leafing out beautifully and so happy. I had to plant them when it was wet and going to rain for like a week so I wanted to get them in the ground. Used a little leaf litter to help with drainage since the soil was wet. These shrubs didn't care! So happy and healthy. You guys clearly take great care of these. Got Aronia, Cranberry Viburnum, and Buttonbushes. Thank you Direct Native Plants!”
