I live in an area of Texas where it is difficult to find many native plants in the local nurseries. I was delighted to find Mail Order Natives since I have been searching for plants that do well in raingardens. They also had swamp milkweed which I have searched for. The plant roots were carefully wrapped to avoid drying and the 7 plants I ordered were carefully nestled in shredded newspaper which I was able to use as the first layer of my new compost bed. I could not be more pleased and will definitely order from them again.
I purchased this plant for my butterfly garden. It arrived healthy, quickly, and was a larger plant than I expected. After planting less than a week ago, it already has new growth. Extremely happy with my purchase!
Arrived tall and healthy
I’ve only had this cotton bush for about a week so I can’t say much about it. I will say how pleased I was with how tall and healthy it was upon arrival. I’ve ordered from this company a few times now and I’ve been happy with the plants and service each time. I’ve been wanting this bush for a while since it’s a great one for pollinators. My yard is small so I’m going to try to keep it pruned so that it has more of a compact tree look.
Plant came as described, healthy and in great shape.
