Beautiful plant and in excellent condition on arrival.Very impressed
I ordered 2 plants, they have arrived very quickly and were packaged very well, I have planted both the same day, that was a couple of weeks ago, the plants are doing great and I am delighted, thanks
Very much less than impressed with the condition of these two plants. Obvious signs of decay in foliage and stems, especially when compared with the C. Montana, a specimen of health.
Fast delivery, plant is healthy and strong. Growing fast, can't wait for the flowers.
The order was delivered very quick and received great plants.
Nice healthy fresh shrub ,well packaged .
