These little plants are thriving beautifully but I am disappointed the blooms do not have that signature heliotrope scent. I'm sure it's just the variety and my mistake. Customer service at this small company is wonderful.

Impressed and will order again!

Due to COVID19, my local nursery in St. Louis did not have all of the plants that I typically plant in my potted plant patio. Heliotrope is a must have. After searching online and reading the reviews, I took a chance at ordering these plants. They were delivered not only in a timely manner, but packaging was unique and essential for shipping. I was amazed at how the plants were already growing. I transferred them into pots and they are growing well. If you are contemplating, bc you live out of state or have never had flowers shipped before, do not hesitate. You will be delighted with the results.

Extremely satisfied

I ordered 18 plants of Marino Blue, all of them arrived in perfect condition, most of them already had flower buds. Now, couple of weeks later all are thriving and blooming profusely. I would highly recommend this plant! Thank you GrowJoy!

Plants are very healthy upon arrival. They smell great. Growing well already and we’re a great price

Blue Heliotrope

I'm pleasantly surprised at how well the plants shipped and arrived without any damage! I came in late to the season, but not too late. Next year I will order earlier, and a few more of the beautiful plants you grow. The ones I potted are doing very well after one week, can't wait to smell them!

Beautiful and fragrant heliotrope

Have always loved these, and get them every year. These are really healthy and arrived packed perfectly and ready to plant! They are better than the ones from my local nursery!

This is the first time I have planted this flower and I am very pleased! The Marino Blue plant arrived in great condition and has the most beautiful purple/blue flowers and deep almost purple/green leaves. Can't wait until it grows larger! It's a lovely addition to my flower garden. Thank you.

Healthy Heliotrope Plants

Very happy with the plants. They arrived healthy and early enough (I requested early delivery) to continue to grow inside.

From Lucinda | April 12, 2013
