My Pugster Periwinkle Butterfly Bush is very healthy and already has a bloom. The bloom is almost as big as the plant right now. It is a beautiful purple.
Delivery was slow but plants arrived well package and very healthy . I planted them a week after they arrived and they are growing and blooming. Very happy with my new plants.
I have followed the directions very carefully my plant arrived in rough shape but i was hopeful but after 2 weeks it has not grown at all in fact leaves are dying i do not think that it will make it. Its a shame i thought it was beautiful in the picture.
Hello Debra, I'm sorry to hear your butterfly bush isn't everything you expected it to be! From the picture I'd say it looks perfectly healthy, it's pretty typical for plants to lose a few leaves here and there as they adjust to a new environment. This plant will be slow to grow, give it some time for its roots to establish in your garden before you give up on it! It also looks like we've extended your warranty to June 15th, so let us know before then if your butterfly bush hasn't improved. Thanks for your feedback!
Plants arrived well packed and healthy. They’ve been in the ground for several weeks and seem to be thriving.
We're happy to hear your new plants are thriving in their new home! Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, Daniel. Please let us know if you ever have any questions, we're here to help. Happy gardening!
