    Thank you Romence for two lovely Chelone "Tiny Tortuga" plants and the others that I have purchased. I received them in 2 days and was amazed at the quality of your beautiful plants. The prices were just as attractive. My other vendor could learn a lesson or two from you on how to package and ship plants. Since your shipment, I have ended my relationship with my other vendor, so you and I now have a ROMENCE going on. I hope more people discover your greenhouse and buy your plants. My garden loves you.

  • I ordered 3 of these plants, and they looked so hardy and strong rooted when I received them. I planted immediately and they are doing fine. Not quite ready to bloom yet.
