* 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. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at 1-804-746-7092.
