  • King Tut

    Posted by Cathie on May 8th 2023

    So far our King Tut is doing well. It was well-packaged and healthy when we received it. We immediately repotted it according to the package instructions.

    We expect it to continue to thrive and grow as large as the King Tuts we have in the past.

    Very pleased!

    This is a perfect plant for our poolside. It makes us happy just watching it grow and waft in the river breeze! I'm going to buy it every year.

  • Great plants

    After a short delay with shipping, plants arrived healthy and a good size. After potting they are growing without any signs of stress.

    King Tut arrived in NJ in perfect condition. He traveled to the adirondacks in NY and is thriving! He grew about 6-8 inches.....we talk to him every day!

  • Wonderful Unique Plant

    Posted by Deb on Jun 12th 2022

    I have planted one of these in a large patio container for the past several years. They are very difficult to find in my area so for the past couple of years I've ordered on-line. I was so glad to find Romence Gardens this year. Their pricing is great and the plants are carefully packed and shipped. The King Tut does require a lot of watering but it is worth it. They grow so tall and full and make a great statement on the patio.
