The scabies came well-packaged and looking healthy. They are in the ground now and doing very well. Have been buying from GrowJoy for several years and never disappointed with their product.

Beautiful plants

My pincushion plants arrived in perfect condition. Planted them right away and they are growing. First time I ever planted pincushion plants but by the picture I'm sure I will love them. You will not be disappointed by ordering from Grow Joy. Love all the plants I have received from them.

From Betty | September 06, 2021

Very large and healthy

I am extremely happy with the flowers I received. They are the largest from any online grower. They ship and arrive guickly in excellent condition which is amazing considering the temperature where I live has been in the high 90s to 100 degrees.

Received in excellent condition!

My Butterfly Blue Scabiosa plant arrived in excellent condition and the size I expected. It adapted very quickly, not losing any leaves, nor did any turn yellow or brown! Though it has been acclimating, not growing much so far, in the last week it is really taking off! I am very happy with my purchase and am fully confident the blooms will be gorgeous ~ the blue will be a great focal point!

After my first order from GrowJoy I immediately went and placed a second order. The care put in their plants is first rate. I ordered 2 scabiosa plants and 1 had a flower blooming already when I opened the package. Its been in the ground a week or so and is flowering very well and has attracted several small bees and butterflies. They are now my go to for live plants!

Perennial Blue Scabiosa

This Blue Pincushion plant arrived in great condition, and I planted it the same day. The price was good, and the ordering and shipping process was seamless. I have ordered from Grow Joy for over 2 years.

From Janice | October 18, 2020


Everything arrived in good condition and with buds and I also love the way you packaged my plants, safe.

From Priscilla | August 09, 2018

Glad I found this company

Very impressed with secure packaging, healthy plants upon receipt, and they are adapting/loving their new Iowa habitat!!!

Blue pincushion

I received my order and have planted but no pics yet as they are babies. The order was impressive, packaged very meticulously, and moist still ….all intact. This is my company from now on not just because of the care but they also have plants for my climate I’m unable to get at nurseries here. Great job GrowJoy!
