* As of June 1st these plants have been treated with a systemic pesticide in accordance with the USDA required Japanese Beetle Harmonization Plan. The pesticide is not a neonicotinoid, but if you plan on hosting any insects or insect larvae with these plants please keep them quarantined for at least 3 weeks. This will give the systemic pesticide sufficient time to move through the plant’s root and foliar system, after which they will be safe host plants.
