All information contained within this website is to the best of our knowledge accurate and correct. However, Sooner Plant Farm cannot and will not be held responsible or liable for any losses or expenses related to inaccurate information acquired from this site.
Inaccurate information including but not limited to pictures, colors, descriptions, comments, spelling, etc. Sooner Plant Farm does not offer any guarantees regarding this matter. Regarding plant descriptions this website is for informational purposes, all risks are assumed by the consumer.
Due to computer monitor color settings, lighting, photo settings etc. photo colors may not reflect true real-life colors.
Mature plant sizes and descriptions are obtained from various reputable industry sources, but actual sizes and descriptions can and will vary based on conditions. We obtain photos and descriptions of newly introduced plants from the breeder or marketing companies for such plants. Occasionally the plant may vary from the picture and or description, due to cultural, growing location, or climate changes. Sooner Plant Farm offers no guarantees regarding this matter.
We suggest you research any item being purchased from us for other information that may or may not be the same as the information contained on this website.
NOTE: Although each plant is inspected before shipping, there are times when a plant(s) may experience some shipping stress. This is almost always only a cosmetic issue and the plant(s) should recover quickly after planting. Yellow, and or brown leaves, leaf drop, or tip burn are typical symptoms that you could possibly see, but as stated previously, it is most often merely a cosmetic issue and will not affect the plant’s overall health. Please consult your planting instructions and remove any bad foliage and or lightly prune the plant and allow a minimum of 30 days for the plant(s) to recover and to start flushing new growth (light pruning encourages new growth). Because we know most plants will recover once planted, after reviewing a photo of the damaged or unhealthy plant(s), we may request you to plant it and give it some time to recover before we deem a replacement plant(s) be shipped.
