A bit small

I was surprised to receive such small plants, that's not like it from here. Hopefully they will grow quickly. Packed and shipped with care.

GrowJoy: Sorry they weren't to the level you usually receive from us. Please let us know if they don't take off and grow.

Cranberry Lace Monarda

This plant arrived quickly and very healthy. It's been in the ground for about a week and a half and it's taking off. Can't wait to see it bloom.
