    Just What I Hoped
    Just received two of these from UPS and was so happy with them right out of the box. They were shipped with care and arrived in great condition. They are nice and full, with lovely green foliage. These will be spending the summer on my back patio, but meant for some pots flanking the front door that currently have annuals in them for the spring and summer. I’m excited to have a plant that will we will be able to enjoy no matter the season.

      Great buy - If you get in store
      These were $10 less when purchased in store. They are a good size and healthy. There are 3 small plants grouped together in the 2 gallon pot. I’m not sure how this will work out over time.

        Tiny despite the pot size
        Not as pictured!!! The shrub we received had about 4 shoots on it, not a full shrub. It was tiny in the large pot...nothing like the picture.

        Small than I expected. Very fresh, green & healthy looking. Planted for a week, so we’ll see how it grows.

        The three - 2 gal Sprinter boxwoods are beautiful, healthy and green and the first 1 gal hydrangea was also very nice, perfect size, green and healthy BUT the second hydrangea was a mess. Someone had taken a little plant, stuck it in a lg. 1 gal container. Three leaves were half eaten and other leaves had holes eaten through them. I'm not happy about that.
