Comment: This plant arrived in good shape and appeared healthy. My local chain store comparison it was quite expensive BUT I wanted to get it started in the early fall with hopes for a good growth in the spring. Thus I had to make a mail order purchase. We shall see if my plan works.

"Excellent plant!!"
