Bloomscape offers potted plants delivered straight to your door (in the continental U.S.), proper drainage and detailed care instructions included. Bloomscape’s selection ranges from tiny one-foot-tall plants for your window sill to “extra-large” statement plants that reach three to five feet tall.
