I ordered 10 of these last summer, I'm in the recommended zones, and did everything right, used peat, watered, fed. Most did not look like 2 gallon size, so I was disappointed. After one season, more than half were not only yellow after winter, but did not come back, had very little new green growth, and were essentially almost dead. Had to return most of them. I've purchased other plants from them and Home Depot with no problems, but these did not work out.
