Reviewed By: Donna (Corpus Christi, TX)
"Plant arrived safely - alive and well. It had been well wrapped and packaged safely. The plant, however is TINY - less than 2"" in diameter. I was very disappointed in the size of the plant and was hoping for something more substantial."

Reviewed By: Stef (Ann Arbor, MI)
Purchased/planted in Spring 2009. In 2009, it grew. In 2010, it was SPECTACULAR!! The only thing that finally ended it's beauty was our first major heavy snowfall which, of course, flattened most of the poor thing. It's growing well and I can't wait for it to hit it's stride again this year.
