Shipping and Delivery

Standard Shipping. Colorado Clivia Company only ships physical merchandise to locations within the continental United States. All plants are shipped bare root. Shipping is done on the first Monday (or Tuesday on postal holidays), weather permitting, after receipt of payment. Colorado Clivia Company, at its discretion, ships via U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail (2 to 3 day), FedEx Ground/Home Delivery (2 to 5 day), or UPS Ground (2 to 5 day) depending on the cost. Title to the package is deemed to have transferred to You, the purchaser, when we deliver the package to the shipping carrier. All shipments have tracking. Unless you request otherwise and pay for any increased costs, shipment drop off without signature is used.

Shipping Insurance. U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail automatically includes $50 to $100 of insurance. Express Mail automatically includes $100 of insurance. Other USPS Postal Services provide no insurance. FedEx and UPS automatically include $100 of insurance. If you desire additional insurance coverage or wish to use other types of shipping, you must let us know in advance and pay for the additional charges. No carrier insures for freeze damage to plants. If you have other types of shipping damage, please contact us. We would be happy to assist you in filing a claim with the carrier.

International Shipping. Colorado Clivia Company only ships physical merchandise to areas in the continental United States. 

Cold Weather Shipping. Colorado Clivia Company ships plants year round. During cold weather we check the projected temperatures using National Weather Service projections for our location, your destination, and the shipping route in-between. If the temperatures are expected to be too low for a reasonably successful shipment we will delay shipping and check conditions again in a week. Our winter packaging is not freeze proof, however, it is upgraded. Cold weather packaging includes a 3/16 inch foil laminated, bubble wrap box liner and one 72-hour heat pack. The foil laminated box liner acts like a space blanket. Use of recommended shipping services, may or may not result in delivery within the 72 hour operation period of any added heat pack.

Three other cold weather shipping options are also available at no cost to customers:

  • Hold at Post Office or Hold at nearby FedEx Office. This prevents plants from freezing after delivery to your "ship to" address. You will need to go to a nearby Post Office or FedEx Office to obtain your package. This, however, does not guarantee un-damaged plants as many shipping trucks are not heated and the weather from Colorado to your state may be colder than our upgraded packaging can resist.
  • Signature required for delivery. This prevents plants from freezing after delivery to your “ship to” address. It is not effective if someone is rarely home during the day. Once again not an absolute guarantee.
  • “Wait for Warmer Weather” shipping. Since many of our plants are only available in very limited quantities and for a limited time, we upon request hold purchased and paid for plants in our heated greenhouse until the weather is warmer. This option is particularly viable for customers living in the northern portions of the United States. Sorry, plants are held only if the plant has been paid for.

To request any of these other cold weather options, please make a note in the comments section of your order.

Phytosanitary Certificates. Phytosanitary Certificates are available at an extra cost. If your state or local government requires a phytosanitary certificate, you are required to let us know in advance.


Sorry, but we do not ship plants to countries outside of the United States or its territories.
