We ship on Friday, Saturday, Monday or Tuesday of each
week of the shipping season, with exceptions for postal holidays.
Please request a shipping date on your order. We will
try to meet your chosen date, but your requested

mature enough to ship or if weather prohibits shipping. You will be
notified by email when your order ships.

Please order at any time, as we hold your plants until your requested ship date
or until weather permits shipping. Please
consider vacations, etc. when requesting your ship date. If you cannot be
home when your plants arrive please arrange for someone to watch for your plants
or instruct the mail carrier as to a safe place to place
the box until you arrive. If the shipping box is subjected to
direct sun or cold temperatures after delivery the
plants could be damaged or killed.
Our shipping season begins the last week of March,
weather permitting. We reserve the right to
use our discretion when deciding if it is safe to ship
Coleus, and we consider the weather both at departure
and arrival when making this determination. It is absolutely crucial for the
survival of cold-sensitive Coleus to wait until the weather is safe.
We will delay shipping when
weather of any kind (hot, cold, hurricane) could threaten the safety of your
plants at any point during the shipping process. Please keep in mind that
our greenhouse operation is in Michigan, so no matter
how warm it is where you live, in March and sometimes
beyond we are often under several inches of snow and
experiencing freezing temperatures.
The last ship date is the first week of June. Summer heat dictates that we
longer grow or ship coleus safely beyond that point.
After we close for the season, all coleus in the catalog will
be listed as out-of-stock until our new online
catalog is released and ordering begins on December 1.
Please Order Early!
Early ordering will be your best bet for
receiving every coleus you want and when you want them. Early orders will be
held in reserve, but orders placed late in the season
will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Certain varieties
may sell out and will be removed from the catalog for
the season, and later orders may have to be
until new stock is mature and ready to ship. We can only
accept the amount of orders that we can handle per week,
and we will close a ship date when it has filled to
email us to add to your
order up to 14 days before we ship your order! Please email us for availability of your add-on plants,
as some varieties may be out of stock as the shipping
season comes to a close. In early June we clear out our
remaining stock and close our greenhouse operation for
How We Ship Your Order:
Your plants will be
individually labeled, bagged, protected in a cardboard sleeve, and carefully
packed in a cardboard shipping box.
We use U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail for mailing all live plants.
We find US Priority Mail to be the most economical way to ship from this area,
and we have based our prices accordingly. Orders will be mailed on Saturday, Monday or Tuesday to assure safe arrival before the
Plants will be shipped when weather permits in Michigan, usually
beginning in late March through the first weekend in June.
When Your Plants Arrive:
Your plants will be carefully packed to assure their arrival in the best
possible condition. We guarantee replacement of plants damaged during shipping
and up to the point of delivery to the address specified
on your order form. Unpack your plants immediately and read the enclosed
instructions and follow them closely. Arrival
instructions are also on the Coleus Care page of this website. Please notify us immediately of
any problems noticed upon

days of the shipping notice.
Rosy Dawn Gardens is not responsible for any damage to plants after they have
arrived at your home in good condition. Damage to your plants or dissatisfaction
with your order must be reported within 72 hours of

Your new coleus have spent their whole
life in a greenhouse, so please water your new plants, plant them in quality soil, and keep them in a warm
area protected from direct wind and sun until they have hardened off. The
plants we sell are sensitive to cold, and should not be planted
outdoors until after danger of frost and average overnight lows are at least 60 degrees. When
planting in areas that receive a lot of sun or wind,
make sure that your coleus have a root system that is
well-developed. The coleus we ship are starter plants,
and the root-balls they arrive with might not be able to
provide the coleus with enough water to survive extreme
conditions. Your coleus may need to be potted and grown
on until their root system is more developed. Please refer to our Coleus Care
page for more detailed instructions.
