    Worth every penny. Such a beautiful plant and the best part is I had two blooms within two days of placing it in the pond.

    Yes I am an actual customer. I don't work for LilyBlooms. I recently ordered and received an Antares and a Tanzanite from LilyBlooms and was thrilled with the quality and maturity of the stock. I had ordered the same from another supplier and it came in badly damaged and was sent way too early for my zone. Lilyblooms was on time, mature and is blooming like mad within a week of receipt. All of this was at a very competitive price. Thank You Lilyblooms. Good Job.
