    My plant arrived well and I got it put in the ground immediately. It’s really pretty. It’s at the end of the season so I can’t really attest to more. Excited to see it grow next season! Liked it so much I ordered another and it’s in the ground as well.

    I love this plant. It arrived happy and healthy and has stayed that way. I lived the way it was packed.
