    The plant arrived in a relatively timely fashion but it was not in good shape and though planted immediately it has died. I will not give you guys a bad public review but I am very disappointed. Was it the distance?

    Never heard of these before, but loved how they look in the pictures. Was a little disappointed the plants weren't flowering when they arrived, but overall in good health. I'm happy and will be telling my friends about this site.
