The plants came earlier than anticipated and were gently placed at the doorstep since they're delicate. I am very pleased with the plants and would recommend this as an option to others that may be considering purchasing online.

Wrong Color sent
Ordered this beautiful blue Hydrangea and while in good shape when it finally flowered (after a few months) it turned out to be pink which I absolutely did not want! I would have been better off buying a blue hydrangea from my local store.
