These are extremely nice plants and they were packed extremely well. I am very pleased. They have grown during the summer and look very healthy. I put them along a long sidewalk that curves down a hill. Our soil is clay-ish, so I added a bit of topsoil, but not much. I'm intending the plants to do without much care--or NO care-- and I think they really will.
