This is a great company. I was not expecting to receive the plants so quickly but they were literally shipped out the morning after I had placed my order. The three plants arrived perfectly packaged and intact. They were small but this was expected based on the product description and the price was great compared to other prices I had found for the same size. They have each already grown at least an inch in the past week just sitting on our patio...this is inspite of daily temperatures of 100+ with heat indexes much higher. It's hot here in Tallahassee! I give them a little bit of water every day and they seem to be doing great. We chose these because they are also a winter hardy plant and we have cold winters here...including a little snow on and off for the past few years. We are waiting until they get a little bit bigger to plant them in our backyard. Thank you so much for the healthy plants and great service. I am excited to see the Rose of Sharon once they are in bloom!
