The plants arrived in good shape with directions. Planted 3 years ago and have not been disappointed!
I planted a lot of these at the back of my lawn. Waiting to see how they do this year.
After placing in proper medium and regular watering, it has grown fast and is a bright green, with new leaves. I expect blossoms in the spring, though the plant itself is impressive.
