Plant Container Sizes

  • All of our container and plant sizes are estimates and will vary depending on the type of plant you order and the brand of the plant.
  • The size of the plants vary quite a bit depending on the time of year and when it was last pruned. We trim our smaller plants every 2 weeks or so to promote healthy branching.

Quart Sized Pots:

This is our most common size of plant and most economical way to purchase plants from us. These are typically ~1 year old plants, and can be somewhat small (typically only 4-8 inches tall) depending on when it was last trimmed. However, once planted these plants are setup to grow quite fast due to healthy branching and strong root systems.

These are typically shrubs, perennials and ornamental grasses that come in this size.


2.5 Quart Sized Pots:



1 Gallon / #1 Container Sized Pots:

Gallons depend on variety, but on average are typically around 10-14 inches tall and sometimes even taller. These plants are usually ~2 years old.

We sell shrubs, perennials and ornamental grasses in this size.


2 Gallon / #2 Container Sized Pots:

We grow many of our Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Shrubs in our 2 gallon pot. This size is also known as a #2 pot in some states. The dry volume of this pot is 1.5 gallons or 5.678 liters. The plants in this size pot are usually three years old. This pot is a little smaller than our 10″ pot but are very close in size. The main difference is that only the Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Shrubs are grown and sold in this pot. You will get a very well established shrub in this size pot. If you are looking to design a large combination container, with a flowering shrub, this is the size to use.


3 Gallon / #3 Container Sized Pots:

This is the biggest size of plants we offer. These plants are at least 3-4 years old, and can be up to 30" inches tall. These are perfect for replacing or adding to gardens, as the plants should be close to the size of the plants already in the ground. 3 gallon sized plants are also perfect for gardeners with a larger budget and less patience waiting for the plants to get to mature size. These plants are already very well established and will explode in the garden once planted.


*Reminder, all of these sizes can vary by plant type, brand and time of year. Hopefully this serves as a good guide to get a general idea of each size you are ordering.
