Whirling Butterflies Gaura

I love the Whirling Butterflies Gaura and the local nursery was out so I found GrowJoy online to order from. The Gaura arrived in perfect condition and is doing great. I'm very pleased and would order from GrowJoy again.

Very healthy plant shipped. Excellent packaging. Best online plant store I have tried based on quality of plant shipped. I have tried quite a few online plant websites.

Great Service

I was very pleased to receive my order so quickly and the plants were,and are, very healthy and doing great. I was having a hard time finding the White Gaura in my local nurseries and I love them so I ordered from here and will order again.

I admit I was astonished at the level of care that was taken to pack my plants for shipment. The plants were packed as securely as if they were priceless. They aren't, but they are to me. I am 100% satisfied.

About three weeks ago, I was placing an order for 20 Whirling Butterflies Gaura plants, and suddenly realized in the middle of the order that I would be out of town. I called one of their representatives and was told that there was a comments' section where I could indicate the shipping date. It went precisely as planned and I received my plants in top notch condition. GrowJoy sent a nice instruction sheet, which said to water the plants immediately upon receipt. I would definitely order plants from them again.

My very first online order

I was hesitant at first, but I took the chance. Fast shipping and excellent packing. The box came delivered upside down, but everything was intact, no damage. Excellent customer service! I recommend this company to everyone!
