So anxious to see these bloom

I had this plant years ago and it was destroyed when my pool was put in. Hadn't been able to find it since. So excited to have one and anxious to see it bloom. Looks so healthy and strong. Thanks!

When I receive my boxes (yes boxes) from GrowJoy it is like Christmas morning for me. Not only am I so excited, but I cannot wait to open the boxes and see what is in there. This is a new plant I am trying this year, but as always when I receive my shipments, the plants are healthy, happy and grow very well. I have been a customer for several years and will be for many more to come.
