      First off, the plant I received was half the size of the one pictured. It was only about a foot high if that. The whole bottom of the plant had leaves with holes in it. Apparently bugs. I will not order shrubs from home Depot again.

      Didn't last a Year
      Bought & planted 5 of these mid-summer last year. Spring is here; they are dead. No issues with the other 100's of trees and shrubs that went in. Not a single one of these made it.

        Smaller than expected
        I ordered the 2.25 gallon and the plants that I received were about 20 inches tall. I previously ordered 2 quart ones from a different vendor and it was about the same size for half the price. I was expecting these to be taller for what I paid. However, they are thicker than the other ones. I’m sure they were cut in order to fit inside the box. One was brown on the bottom with lots of white dots. Not sure if it has an infection or it’s this is normal for this shrub.

            Small plant big price
            I paid basically $100. A piece for these sky pencils via online so I could get the same 7 gallon I purchased in the store. They instead sent me, I believe, the small 2 gallon plant in the 7 gallon container and charged the 7 gallon price. I was shocked when I opened the large boxes! I could have gotten a larger 2 gallon in the store for $25.00. It’s been over a month and I still get upset every time I see them in my backyard!
