    I have yet to have any issues with the plants that I’ve received. Always happy with the size, health and packaging of my plants.

    A beautiful milkweed plant arrived in great shape and is now doing well in my yard. This plant was carefully wrapped and packed with a big root ball that was easily transplanted. Thanks so much for making sure I got the correct milkweed for my region and for helping the pollinators!

    This is now my second year ordering from Mail Order Natives (last year bought a variety of azaleas that are all thriving). This year I ordered swamp hibiscus, swamp mallow, and swamp milkweed for a new rain garden. All looked in nice shape on arrival, carefully packed, and glad to say 100% of all the plants I've bought are doing great! Look forward to ordering again in the future :)

    Aquatic milkweed

    So happy with these plants! Arrived in perfect condition and one even had flowers. Another company I ordered from sent me 2 dry sticks, one with the roots broken off—prob total waste of money. I will definitely order from Mail Order Natives again.

    Asclepias perennis (aquatic milkweed)

    My perennis plant arrived quickly and well packaged. It looked a bit sad and weary, but 2 days after planting, it was perking up. One week later, the buds are open and there is an abundance of new growth. I'm very pleased with my purchase!

    I can always use another milkweed in my garden and these plants arrived in very good shape and good sized. Everyone should plant milkweed and I am glad Mail Order Natives always has a good supply.

    The plants are strong and healthy and after planting seem to be thriving. They appear to be about ready to flower. For those of us who order plants frequently the way you packed them was wonderful -- no styrofoam peanuts, no staples, and very little debris to dispose of. Thank you!
