Well when we opened the box unfortunately most of the dirt had fallen out of the pot and what was in it was pretty dry. After adding more soil and plant food I believe it will be fine. Will get it put in the ground soon right now we are just trying to nurse it back to good health,can't wait to see it grow and blossom should be a great addition to the land scape.

This bush is beautiful and smells amazing. I actually purchased two different varieties from the same company because I love them so much.
I had been a little skeptical of having plants shipped, because I worried about them being beat up in transit. Both shrubs arrived in great shape.
I'm looking forward to attracting more butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden this year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by justbombs It's beautiful!!!!
It's beautiful!!!! Came as expected and described in a tiny pot. I couldn't plant immediately, but I gave it some water and set it near a window overnight. It's been in the ground just a few days and is already growing happily. I can't wait to see it full size and hope the butterflies and bees will love it too! As for shipping and the condition, the plant was wrapped and shipped with care. The foliage was pretty dry and some of it was brown. The soil was damp though so maybe it got dried out during shipping. The size is as described and over all I'm happy.

Great plant that had a lot of positive growth budding off of it and was able to survive a replanting in the earlier spring season. The bush was vibrant and larger than expected, and had a strong root structure that was easily acceptable to the new ground we planted into. Once planted, the bush took quickly to the area, growing quickly and becoming a great addition to the backyard, once the weather breaks and blooming happens, itll be great to see the color it adds and the wildlife it brings.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jim excellent plant, so-so packaging, NO instructions
The plant itself (this is a full-size butterfly bush with showy striped leaves and lavender-colored flowers, although I haven't seen any flowers yet) arrived in excellent condition, by far the most beautiful and healthiest looking plants I've ever bought online or by mail order. I received and planted it a month ago, and it's just started to extend its branches with bright new leaves, but with no sign of blooms yet. I'm very fond of it. It looks hardy, healthy and cheerful.
There are two fairly serious problems, though, that aren't related to the plant itself. The plant came with NO instructions, of any kind, anywhere. No instructions about how to plant it, when to expect blooms, how to care for it in case it can't be planted immediately... nothing. Not a word. Not even any clue how to get it out of the rather intricate packaging that protected the plant fairly well but did not keep the soil from dispersing throughout the box when UPS ignored the prominent THIS END UP arrows.
The three plants I ordered arrived stacked on top of each other with all their arrows pointing at my neighbor's house. All three plants were in beautiful condition, though, so it mainly just made a mess when I unpacked them and potting soil went flying everywhere.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaGator Got for the Butterfly Attractant, but Challenging to take care of
I went to Epcot and they had a butterfly exhibit, which was nice and relaxing. Since butterflies can travel completely from the north to the south, I figured that it would be nice to have these plants around for them during the next appropriate time of year. However, these plants are very challenging to take care of because they are not for the 10b Hardiness zone of South Florida. The plant was fine on arrival, but quickly dried out because I had to travel for work. It seems like it requires water daily. I will try to get it back to green, but the leaves are turning rather quickly. I was beginning to wonder if this plant is really for the northern states instead of the southern states and after looking up what the hardiness zones actually are, that's exactly what I found. This plant would do best across the middle of north america, not in South Florida. My mistake, but don't let that stop you from getting it if you are in the appropriate zone. It definitely came very well packaged and in good condition.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jstine35 Unfortunately, it died
I will say up-front that this bush most likely died, at least partially, due to our own mistakes. It shipped to us dormant while we were still in a period of time where there could be frost We probably should have watered it more often while we had it inside, but we didn't want to over-water it, either. It did not survive long enough to be transplanted outside.
