Disappointed but still hopeful...
I'm not thrilled with the plant I received. But I'll plant it, give it some TLC and see how it does. If it surprises me, I'll update this review later.

    I couldn’t bring myself to pay $40+ for more mature plants at local nurseries. These cane small, printed back but still living. All three are in the ground and growing. I was also worried because the foliage they DID have was green, but since being outside the leaves are darkening up.

    I was so surprised to see that all 5 plants came in a 3' box. LOL~ The plants were maybe 3" tall. I guess I didn't read the description well. I would not purchase this size again, I'd spend the money on a larger size. My guess is it will take another 5 years to get them to 3 ' tall. Keeping my fingers crossed!

    Beautiful plants
    The plants arrived healthy, and were transplanted into a large planter. They are doing well and are by far the best plants I have bought from Home Depot. Proven winners are good quality and I recommend them!
