Looking good

Good looking plant… I am anxious to see it grow

From Martin | September 09, 2023


The Black Lace Elderberry arrived several days ago in excellent condition and larger than expected. I have ordered so many plants from GrowJoy this year that it would be very time consuming to review them all. Let me just say that all of these plants have arrived in excellent condition and are thriving. The GrowJoy packing system ensures that plants arrive undamaged and FedEx shipping minimizes time in transit absolutely worth every dime of the shipping cost. Thank you GrowJoy!

Black Lace Elderberry Plant (Sambucus)

This delicate laced plant arrived so healthy in the special protective packaging that GrowJoy is so well-known for, to ship all of their wonderful plants! The Sambucus loves the sun, and thrived all summer long. I look forward to seeing it break out in blossoms this coming Summer. Nancy Gebhardt
