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
I have her not far from another butterfly bush. The soil is the same the sunlight is as plentiful. This little girl has not grown at all in the past month. However, she is still alive and I can see the beginnings of the flowers. I am hoping that she will have a growth spurt. I am a little discouraged but ever hopeful.
