Kinda small plant in a 2.25 gal. container but it’s healthy. I have bought a few of these plants years ago and they are thriving well. They survived the crazy NJ weather.

They were quite a bit shorter then expected but in overall good shape. They are doing nicely in their new pots. The roots were in really good conition.

      Ordered 2.25 pot is, plant is not!
      The 2.25 gallon pots were what I ordered. That is the pot of dirt received. However the plant is shorter than more quart or one gallon plants I have ordered! Big disappointment in the size! They do appear healthy at least. I would suggest going to the store if yours has them stocked. I purchased on line.

        Top was chopped off to fit in the shipping box
        We ordered several of these three years ago. They were lovely and had some decent height and shape. We needed one more for a new spot in the yard. I knew it would be small, but expected the shape to be that of a sky pencil. It arrived with the top chopped off. It has no shape and I don’t know if it will ever grow into a normal sky pencil shape. And it’s barely a foot tall. I wasn’t home when it arrived. My husband planted it. Otherwise I would have returned it.

          Severely Root Bound - Received 2 plants
          I made an initial positive review of my purchase in Nov 2020. Spring 2023, my plant started to deteriorate quickly. I had to dig up the plant and took a close look. I noticed 2 stems but they were tightly bound together, I thought it was 1 plant that had branched. Soon I realized it was 2 plants that had been strangling each other. I had to cut them apart with a utility knife. Now I know why there has been little to no growth all this time. Time wasted. Check closely before planting.
