Comment: My plants arrived quickly & in the best shape ever. The way they package them for shipping keeps them hydrated. I was truly surprised at how big & healthy the plants were. I planted them and so far they are doing outstanding. I will never order from any other nursery again.

"Beautiful plant"

Comment: Although they are becoming more popular, I found it difficult to find plants or seeds, and was unsuccessful in starting them from cuttings. I found them online at  GrowJoy. The plants arrived healthy and on time. I was very pleased with my purchase.

Comment: My shipment of plants arrived completely intact as they always do from GrowJoy. They are so easy to plant in this condition and have an extra boost in their growth due to less shock, unlike any I have ever received from other suppliers.

Comment: I ordered and received three Persian Shield Strobelanthus plants late in May here in MA. Two were very healthy, the third not so, but rather than complain immediately, I waited to see if it would recover. When it did not, I contacted GrowJoy early in a July, and even though I was beyond the warranty (who knew ?), GrowJoy graciously shipped a replacement immediately. Pleased to report this latest plant is growing well. Will take pix and email shortly. They are stunning.
