    I have been trying to get a good looking Crimson Fire for over a year. The two I purchased from another site before discovering PBM were lopsided and just not what I was hoping for as foundation plants. I discovered PBM and put myself on their waitlist and ordered two more when notified they were in stock. The plants were healthy but also really lopsided. I have decided that this is a First Editions problem rather than the vendors. This plant ticks all the boxes on my wish list for a foundation plant so I am bummed that I am going to have to give up on it as I cannot seem to obtain a plant that looks even slightly like the one in Horttubes video.
