Sad little plant
It arrived timely but it looks so little and sad that I am in love with this poor thing immediately. It is a life after all!

    This arrived in the morning and was packaged nicely with the trellis for it to grow up. I'm always a little worried when I order live plants but was pleasantly surprised when opening the box to find a healthy growing plant. We planted it that afternoon and it has been growing nicely. The purple is vibrant and can't wait for it to grow produce many more beautiful flowers. Would recommend this to anyone.

    Promises to be a beautiful plant although I do no expect it to bloom until next year. The plant looked a little droopy when it arrived but I planted it immediately. The plant looked fine the next morning after a good watering. There was a small branch that was damaged in shipping but overall it was health looking. The clematis plant is rather delicate but continues to grow and vine taller each day. If you are inpatient, perhaps you should try buying a flowering one at the Home Depot garden center.

    The Happy Jack Purple Clematis arrived in perfect condition. The plant is nicely sized and quite healthy. I removed the plant by opening the bottom of the box and lifting the box away. In doing so, A rather nice bamboo trellis style support remained in the box. I should have expected the support and am lucky that I didn’t do any damage to the plant. There were no signs of insect or disease damage and the plant was not wilting. The plant’s root ball was protected during shipping by being enclosed in a drawstring plastic bag. The Clematis has a nice, healthy mass of roots which made removal of the bag simple enough. After removing the bag, I placed the root ball back into the nursery container and gave the plant a good watering. I planted the Happy Jack Purple Clematis in a mass planting in front of a wooden wall next to our driveway. There are two other clematis there and this should balance things. Everything looks good and I can’t wait to see it in bloom. This is a wonderful Clematis!

    Healthy and Blooming Beautifully
    I was super excited to try clematis for the first time! My order came about 3 weeks ago. The vines are really delicate and with carefully tying they've begun to climb - about an inch every day! Just today I saw my first open flower and it's a vibrant purple. I didn't expect the bloom to be so big compared to the thin baby vines! I purchased 3 1-gallon plants and installed them in part sun, training them to climb the poles of our 2nd story deck supported by twine until I get something more permanent. My only complaint is the shipping. The three plants came in only 2 boxes, with two plants crammed into a box that was clearly meant to hold only one. I had to painstakingly untangle the twisted mess and most of the soil from the containers had spilled all over the inside of the box. One plant hasn't quite gotten over its rough start. It's healthy, but hasn't caught up to the healthy growth of the other two. Still, I am thrilled with the beautiful plants and excited to see how they do!
