    Not happy with my purchase!

    Posted by Tasha Hardy on Jun 7th 2020

    For the price the starter that I got was not worth it at all. I was able to find them elsewhere for the same price and four times the size.

    tropical looking plants

    Posted by Donna Waller on Mar 28th 2019

    I wanted to plant a bunch of these around my pool, because I think these look very tropical, but can grow in my area (Chicago) just fine. I'm very happy with these, and it makes my patio area look fantastic!
