I bought two. They arrived much bigger than I expected and settled right in. They’re growing like they’ve always been here. Lily turf is my dog’s favorite plant. She loves to weave her way in and around them. Daisy Mae gives these outstanding plants two paws up. I think I’m gonna have to get some more!

The packaging was crazy, a waste of too much cardboard stacking plants in a tower. I was expecting something else from home depot that week, so I didn’t open it for a day. Good thing they’re hardy; so far
