I had not dealt with Siskiyou in a few years. In the past, orders were always sent on the date I requested them, but the plants were on the small side. I am happy to note the specimens in my most recent order were HUGE in comparison, with deep root development. The only snag was that 5 species were not sent, due to "crop failure". It would have been helpful if those items were either taken off the on line listing or listed as a "crop failure". Then, I could have looked for them somewhere else. Otherwise, plants were sent the week I requested and arrived in 2 days through USPS!! (flat rate box).

I ordered a Variegated Elkhorn Cedar and a Hebe from Siskiyou and I have to say that it was the quickest and easiest transaction that I've had in quite some time with a mail order nursery. Within just a few days of my order, I received my plants all the way from Oregon to North Carolina (lightning fast shipping!!!). The plants were perfectly packed and upon inspecting them they were healthy, full of vigor and first-rate. I would highly recommend Siskiyou for all of your rare plant needs. The website was easy to navigate and the communication was great. Thank you for a wonderful transaction!!!

I ordered three ferns from this company, and they called me the next business day to check that it was OK to ship them. The plants arrived a few days later, well packed and in great condition. Excellent service !

I live near Medford and have been able to shop directly from the beautiful display gardens. However, the nursery in Medford is no longer open and someone else is operating it at a different location. The display garden is now private and open by reservation for certain events only. I don't have a current catalog and don't know what the new address is, or if the plant offerings are the same.

Hello, I am Dale Sullivan, the new owner of Siskiyou Rare Plant Nursery. We have updated our address and phone information on this site. Also, for you local customers (or those traveling through), we are open to the public Wed-Sun 9AM to 4PM March 15 - November 15. We are installing new display gardens, so please drop by and have a look around. Our plant selection is similar, but we are trying to focus more on the rare and rebuild the stock of old Oregon natives. Also, we are striving to ship only large, well-grown, and well-rooted plants. Thank you all for your prior business, and we look forward to serving you well in the future.

The fortunate recipient of a box of plants from this nursery will feel positively compelled to race to the computer and place another order. Here it is, only the beginning of February, and I've already received two orders. If this keeps up, I'll have to buy more land.

The plants are as carefully packaged as little objets d'art. Most of them are are little, because most of them are alpine and rock garden plants, but their root systems are huge. The moisture-lovers are lovingly wrapped in peat moss, like Mediterranean gourmet delicacies. I always get hungry when I unpack them.

Replies to customer queries are speedy and complete. The selection of plants is amazing, including many rare and hard-to-find items. Prices are low. Delivery is quick. No traces of pest damage or discoloration on the leaves. What more could anyone ask?

I received my first order from siskiyou today and the plants were very well packed with extensive root systems. These are among the healthiest, best looking plants I've ever received. The professional way in which the bareroot plants are wrapped must be seen to be believed. These guys take incredible care with the plants they send. I would not hesitate to order from them again.

I was concerned about the size and condition of the plants when they arrived because they were pretty small and quite dormant, but once I potted them up I had to get out of the way! The were rarin' to go and quickly filled out into some of the most beautiful mail order plants I've received to date. Highly recommended!

My husband and I moved into our first house last June and ordered a large number of plants from this company, mostly because they were unavailable through other retailers. Although Siskiyou does not offer large replacement guarantees (plants have to have died during dispatch or following 5 days of receipt) they are worth buying from. The plants arrived well packed and all except two gentians died (we ordered 18 plants). I will be ordering from them again this spring mostly because of the success with their products and also because they are a small courteous operation.
