    Surpassing Expectations

    Posted by Amber on May 4th 2024

    I wasn’t sure how the inkberry shrubs would do in my backyard. It has very poor drainage, and much of it is shaded by deciduous trees from spring to late fall. However, I needed some evergreens that could help create a sense of privacy year-round. So far, these have done well.

    The inkberry was super healthy and happy even after I accidentally left them in the box a couple of days after they arrived!

    Three of Five survived

    Posted by JM on Jun 30th 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.
