I ordered 6 of these. I was skeptical on ordering plants online but decided to anyways. Let me say whoever packaged my box is a pro! Every single plant was taped up to prevent the dirt from coming out of the planter with extra care.. each plant was then wrapped with tube like bubble wrap. Leave it to our postal service to figure out a way to bust up only one plant. But sill solid roots and great looking leaves for a fall planting. I'm sure there will be no issue getting it to root and come back in the spring. I have already had multiple people ask where I got them and it's only been a few days. Can't wait to order more!
