    Three of Five survived

    Posted by JM on 30th Jun 2019

    I planted five fall 2017. By spring 2019, three have survived and are growing well. I attribute the loss to my own cultural practices and the many deer in my country location. If you have deer pressure, I'd recommend protecting the young plants until they are at least 2 years old. The survivors will be beautiful shrubs and are a good alternative to the blighted boxwoods.

    It shipped on the day I requested and was well packaged with no shipping damage. It's larger than I expected and even has berries! Very helpful since now I know it's female.

    The 1 gallon plant arrived very healthy, and my hopes are that it will acclimate well to the low and wetter conditions I've planted it in. This is my second attempt at this wonderful native.

    The plants I received were in exceedingly good condition and well packaged. Good, vigorous root balls and healthy foliage. I was very pleasantly surprised in every way. They were shipped exactly when I asked for them. Price was exceptional, too!

    This plant was really large and healthy; while planting, I was actually able to split into three plants.

    healthy shrubs

    The inkberries seemed healthy and viable. Both are doing fine so far. This native understory shrub is hard to find, and I am looking forward to watching them grow.
