Never tried bare root plants before. Had them planted couple weeks and they are starting to sprout and doing great. I’m thinking I prefer the bare roots now. I’ll definetely be ordering more from this site. Wonderful!
In 2 years it has grown, large/full and lush. The butterflies flock to this plant.
