Our plants are not in danger of dying during the hottest parts of summer, but they do sometimes look stretched or faded when they arrive after spending multiple days in a dark shipping box. They will always recover rapidly once removed from the box and given proper care.
However, if you need them to look perfect upon arrival, we recommend using Fast Standard Shipping from mid-June through mid-September if you live on the east coast. Alternatively, when placing an order, you could request a later ship date if you are worried about extreme heat. Thank you!
