    This bigger than expected healthy plant was artfully packaged. Not a single broken branch. I am thrilled with my puchase

    The plant overall is healthy. I was incredibly disappointed the plant was packaged in a box too small for the plant’s height. The central leader of the shrub had been bent to fit inside the box and was broken in two places. When I reached out to customer service, they would not accept responsibility for how the plant was packaged, which was disappointing and told me I could just prune it out. I work in horticulture and understand I can prune it out, but I paid for an intact plant that was not broken and it was the main central branch that I had to prune 10 inches off of. It was mostly disappointing that they would not accept responsibility and atleast try to resolve my disappointment.

    Really excited to see this grow! Arrived in perfect shape and was really big. Looks very healthy and I can’t wait to see some blooms. Interested to see what the banana scented flowers are like.

    Potted plant arrived in great shape. It was well boxed so no damage when it arrived. I purchased it in August and it had a lot of potential blooms. Can’t wait until it grows throughout next year to enjoy the beautiful pink flowers and banana smell
