    I ordered some sparkleberry bushes and was very pleased with health, size, and care of packaging. Would definitely use this company again.

    Arrived in good condition with leaves that have stayed for several weeks now. I mail ordered little shrubs from 7 businesses this year and this order was one of the top two for packing. Good quality plants. Same species from another source was dead twigs.

    These plants were very nice! Larger than I anticipated! All plants that were shipped were packed with care. I will be revisiting your company again for natives!

    No complaints

    Arrived in remarkably good shape--flowering, if I remember correctly--, particularly given the trouble I've had growing this species before, and is still looking good a couple of months later. No leaf loss that I can see, and I'm seeing new growth.

    Healthy plants at a low price

    Posted by Mark in Florida on 3rd Aug 2016

    I was a little skeptical about ordering these (I bought 5 plants) as the price here is lower than elsewhere. I was pleasantly surprised, however, when I opened the box and found 5 carefully prepared and packaged Sparkleberries in very healthy shape. All 5 are doing well with new growth this summer. I am very pleased with this purchase and will order again.

    Stands behind their commitment!

    Ordering was no problem. Shipment of 3 Farkelberry arrived on time with one damaged plant. Contacted Mail Order Natives & a replacement plant was resent. These are well established plants. All plants are planted now & doing well. When I need to order more I will definitely choose MAIL ORDER NATIVES again. Thanks!

    This my second attempt to re-establish Sparkleberry trees on our property. (We were part of the 34,000 Ac wildfire in Bastrop, Texas 9/4/2011). Last year I ordered 10 trees from another online source -- they were shipped quickly, (bare root), I planted them (the day they arrived) in areas on our 11 Ac where they were prevalent before the fire...None survived - most never leafed out. The trees from Mail Order Natives were shipped immediately, with good root balls, very well packaged, had healthy leaves and were planted on arrival. There has been no leaf loss and the trees appear to be extremely healthy. I have planted almost 900 native, drought resistant Loblolly Pines and numerous other trees native to "The Lost Pines" area. Thank you for providing such quality trees to help us continue our restoration of the native trees, grasses, and other plants. Thanks again, Ray & Diane Long
