    I couldn't find this plant locally, although it grows well here, so I ordered some from Romence gardens. They arrived in excellent condition and have flourished in my garden. I'm so pleased!

  • Lovely plant!

    Plant received rapidly; carefully packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Plant more than doubled in size in just one summer. Very, very pleased with the company and the quality of the plants and customer service. Definitely will purchase from again, highly recommend.
