WHAT IS THAT? it's the question I hear most often when visitors catch site of this little plant. Frankly, it's been low maintenance and adorable.

My Favorite Annual

I ordered a little too late in the season, so they are a little smaller than usual, but they're so gorgeous and the flowers last so long, they're still great. Arrived healthy!

Beautiful gomphrena

This was my second spring ordering gomphrena from GrowJoy, and my second summer having beautiful success with these wonderfully hardy anuuals in my planter. Many thanks, GrowJoy. (I know it's been a challenging season, but I've had nothing but positives with my orders from you.)

I know the truffle pink gomphrena are a popular variety, but I love this purple version much more. Unfortunately the wild bunnies also love them.

Gomphrena Plants

I ordered six Gomphrena plants. The plants arrived on time. The plants were well packaged and as a result did not suffer during transport. The plants had very healthy root balls. All six plants are thriving.

The plants arrived beautifully healthy with multiple purple flowers already blooming! You can't beat GrowJoy quality thank you!

High heat

These plants have survived the Phoenix summer beautifully!

Very happy

I have ordered from quite a few online nurseries. This was the absolute best! Plants were packaged well and in great shape. Blooms and leaves with the actual height that was advertised.

Purple Pinball Gomphrena Plant

These cute little round plants have the prettiest shade of purple balls of flowers. They really brighten up my garden, and we haven't seen them anywhere ever before. Everyone loves them! Nancy G.

Beautiful and fun

Ordered these for myself as well as sent some to my sister and a friend. They are so cute at this stage....arrived well packaged and blooming. They have been stretching their legs in prep for planting in the garden tomorrow. I'm an experienced gardener but this is the first time for me with these. So excited. Great company!
