    plants are beautiful, however I had purchased larger plants that are planted into 3 gallon pots and have grown to fill the pot; one plant was damaged upon receipt. What I received were plants taken from 1 gallon pots, replanted into 3 gallon pots.

    red flowers

    Posted by Shari Butler on Mar 3rd 2019

    I have a red flower garden and thought these would be a perfect addition to it. I live in zone 7, and the plants are doing absolutely great so far, and fit right in with my other red flowering shrubs.

    I love the red flowers. Just wish I could cut them into arrangements easier. But they look beautiful in my garden!

    These were much smaller in the mail. For what I paid in shipping I expected these to be larger. They were healthy though, so that's why I give it 3 stars instead of 1.

    New plant for my garden

    Posted by Gardening Grandma on Oct 7th 2017

    This is such a great addition for my garden. The plant arrived really healthy and within a week of purchasing. I'll definitely be ordering from you again! Especially if I can get points every time I do order...I can't wait to earn a free plant. I'll be so excited for that!

    Happy I purchased

    Posted by Pam on Oct 3rd 2017

    I ordered 1 of these to see what would happen. I've never heard of this website before, so I wanted to test it out before making a bigger purchase. I couldn't be happier! I ordered the azalea on Friday and it was at my door on Tuesday. I was given the tracking number so I could see exactly when to expect it to arrive. The plant was in great shape as well, and is currently doing great in my garden. I'll definitely be ordering from plant addicts again!
