Beautiful plants, bought 2. Growing very well.
I ordered two of these in spring 2022 and when they arrived, one was double the size of the other one shipped. This looks awkward as they are planted this year, but I know they will both be the same next year and I am willing to wait for that. They both were nicely leafed out and as of today, around 6 weeks from receipt, they are developing their flower clusters. I am looking forward to seeing them in bloom, especially since they are still not even available in person at my local garden centers. That is why i rely on GGP to be able to get the plants I really want as opposed to settling for the ones locally available.
My bushes arrived so healthy, they are blooming now! Great deep,purple color, I love them.
Plant arrived in very healthy condition. It actually flowered a few days ago. Hopefully it will grow into a compact flowering shrub that is attractive to butterflies and other insects.
The original shipment was replaced (no questions asked) because of a surprise killing frost. Replacents healthy and beautifully flowered.
