Order Information

  We have wrapped up our geranium shipping season.  With the arrival of some warm temperatures and nearing the end of our supply of geraniums, it has become necessary.  We will ship again next spring and will soon have a firm date in March when we will begin.

Each collection consists of six plants, in 4.5” pots. The six will be randomly selected out of the group listed under each collection. The selections will be Shady Hill’s choice, but all six geraniums will be different and individually tagged. If you would like to choose your own specific varieties, you can do that as well. Our box holds 6 pots, so please order in multiples of 6. These are the collections that are available:

The price for each collection is $60.00 and that price includes six different, individually tagged geranium plants, grown in a 4.5” pot, plus care and growing instructions and some background information on these unique geranium varieties. FedEx 2 Day Service from our greenhouses in Elburn, IL is also included in this price. The cost for you choosing the varieties is $12.00 per pot and includes all of the items listed above.

We include the price of Fed Ex 2 Day delivery in the price of each plant.  Fed Ex charges for the size of the box, so the shipping cost for 2 plants is the same as for 6 plants, with the box we use.  If you would like to order less than 6 plants, the cost is 12.00 for each plant, plus a 35.00 charge for shipping. 

After receiving your order, we will e-mail you a confirmation with a shipping date. If you have a preferred shipping date, please let us know what that is. When your order arrives, it will contain growing instructions, as well as some background information on the unique geraniums that you receive.

Please note that since all orders will be delivered by FedEx 2 Day Service we cannot ship to P.O. boxes. Deliveries can only be made on weekdays, so a business address is often the best option. We also ask for a signature on delivery to avoid shipments being left out in cold temperatures.

The Fancy-Leaf Collection

This group of geraniums is known primarily for its attractive and unusual foliage, but many of the varieties have lovely flowers, as well. These geraniums are zonal varieties that have beautiful markings and unique leaf colors that can be as simple as a white border on the leaves while others combine chartreuse, bronze, crimson, creamy yellow. The green leaved varieties range from a pale sage, silvery green to dark forest, chocolatey green.
