          Fingers Crossed
          They were well packaged but arrived a little wilted, have followed instructions so fingers crossed they survive.

                Very small but surving will not order on line for plants all my order was very depressing and one died. Hopefully others will make it. Worse quality on all of them.
                    Grows quickly. Excellent addition to patio.
                        The plants came, werent too large but took right away, grew right away and are spreading, I think I got 8 pots and I am happy.
