Advanced Search Perennials

The "All Perennials" search function is now an archival database which shows all of the plants that have been offered by The Flower Factory in the recent past. The "search function" will return all of the plants that meet the characteristics and uses that have been entered. Some, but not all, of these plants will be currently available. By comparing the plants suggested by the search function to the plants available on the The Flower Factory Square Site, the plants suited to a planting scheme can be determined and ordered. For instance, the search function may return 10 Achillea varieties as possible plants to use but the plant order site will only list 4 varieties as being available.

How to order: Go to The Flower Factory Square Site and choose from the available plants there. Place your order, choose an available "pickup time slot", and pick up your plants at that time. We will have limited times available for pickup this season so make sure you find a time that fits your schedule.
