The plants came on time. 1 of them came smaller than the other two. I have been working at keeping them alive. See if they come back next year.

Doubled , quadrupled in size, lengthy and wirey now & blooming already!! Ordered it just a month ago too! No great smell but I guess that comes when it's a more mature plant! Love it!
That's all I can say about it; it was a small plant when it arrived and is no bigger now, though it was planted by my great professional gardeners and in a garden.
Shipped as expected. Got into the ground and about 4 weeks later I’ve got 2 bright purple blooms on each plant. They are doing very well.0
