I rated these plants fair, because they are alive. However, for the price, they were very, very small. I have planted them and I hope they grow. I paid almost $18.00 for each plant and they sure didn't appear to be 2.5 quart size.

          These are SMALL plants! The packaging was good. The limbs are brittle and break off very easily. I bought two and planted them near a walkway. One looks good. The other has been bumped or stepped on by passing dogs I guess and has nothing left but one branch. I put a small fence around it.

          The plant was healthy with no broken branches and no dry or discolored leaves. The soil was still damp. It is doing very well in a pot in the backyard. I have had it for about 6 weeks. I recommend this product.
