Plumes already!

I purchased 4 plants. They were well packaged, but the roots were traveling through the bottom holes. I was concerned. 2 months later, these plants are growing fast, look healthy and strong. The plumes are showing off, lol

Beautiful!!

I ordered the Cassian dwarf fountain grass on Sunday. They were fulfilled on Monday and I received them Wednesday. They are in excellent condition and much larger than I expected them to be. They were packaged well - 10 in 1 box. I was fortunate to live in the 2 day zone so they did not have to sit long in the box. I am very pleased with my first purchase from Plantingtree.com! Thank you!

1st Time Purchase

PlantingTree was my first online purchase experience and it was excellent. Product came very timely and all were very well packaged to insure no damage. The plants were healthy & thriving as well. I recommend PlantingTree and will purchase from this nursery in the future.
