Very happy with the plants that were shipped to me. In excellent condition. They are very happy and already blooming about a week after putting them in the pond!
Planted immediately has taken nicely to bog and growing already
My first time ordering from here. I'm sooo excited about my new plants. They were shipped beautifully and large size. I put this in a pot and added it to my frog pond...2 days later it was blooming. Highly recommend this company. Beautiful, well cared for plants!!!
Plant came in excellent shape!
My plant arrived with a well developed root system--which had been growing inside the 2 inch planting container for a long, long time. The roots were curled around each other and the walls of the container in a Tangled mess that took more than a half hour to carefully extract and straighten out. The product itself came with 3 stems, only 1 of which appeared to be alive. Since then, those two stems have continued to deteriorate, but the third Stem seems to be thriving. So long as my plant makes it, I'll be satisfied enough. :)
The plants arrived after only a few days in excellent shape. They have been in my pond a couple of weeks and despite rather cold days/nights are growing nicely.
