    I was extremely pleased with my experience ordering from PBM. My two Stellar Ruby Magnolias were delivered within a week. They arrived very well packaged and were bigger than anticipated. They even have flower buds on them. I decided to order another one and it was delivered in the same fashion. Will not hesitate to order from them again.
