I love that I can plant such a beautiful, strong plant in the shade. I live near a creek, and these plants did just fine, even through the hurricane. I was surprised that they grew over 6 feet tall. The first year, I could tell that they had been enjoyed by monarchs. The pink flowers are really pretty too.
Plant looked healthy. Had good root system. Had to wait to plant because of Hurricaine. Developed some aphids which were not on it when it arrived as far as I could tell. Hopefully will do well.
I ordered 2 of these to help establish my butterfly garden. They came very carefully packed, and looked a little thirsty but came right back after planting and watering. They are looking better every day!
My order was shipped promptly, the plants were carefully packaged with a strong root system and healthy plants. I planted them the day they arrived and they are both doing well. I plan to be a repeat customer.
