    Great Online Store Great Customer Service

    Posted by AMAN on Jun 13th 2020

    Even during Shelter In Place, you delivered the plant so fast. The plant arrived in perfect condition, beautiful and healthy. When customer service agents with other companies are nowhere to be found, the owner writes me back personally on a weekend to address the shipping concern. It's what I called great customer service! Highly recommended.

    My plant is in a container. I receive numerous compliments on this shrub. I think it shows better in a container. This is a hardy eye-catcher in Middle Tennessee Zone 7a. I love this shrub and you can shape it!
