Could not find a Lophospermum at any of our local Green Houses or in the Iowa Metro locations. Called many and most didn't even know what that plant was. Found at Romence Green house online and took a chance. Ordered 3 plants, two red and one white and to my surprise were larger than I thought and very hardy. They don't ship over the weekends to prevent issues. I think we received the plants surprisingly less than 48 hours from ordering. They were very healthy and soil was still damp that they were shipped in. All three were transplanted into a hanging container and survived the summer. I hope to save it over the winter, but if not we know we can get these again next spring at Romence and not be worried about what will be shipped as this first time order gave us confidence and trust in them.
