They came staked, and looked healthy. We ordered very late in the spring season and both plants came with flower buds ready to open. After planting (2 plants), we had terrible heat but somehow the plants continued to survive and are blooming nicely after about a month.

I was highly disappointed in what I received in the mail. The plants were very small and not the healthiest looking. A few days later I go into the store and see plants that were 10 times as large, much healthier and less expensive! I will Never buy plants online from Home Depot again!
