My plants arrived in great shape. They were full pots and not scraggly plants. The packaging was designed to keep them in good condition for transit in a hot Missouri summer. Would definitely buy again.
I couldn't have asked for anything better they arrived in fantastic condition however I would have preferred for them to have come by Federal Express rather than U. P. S. As they come very late and don't bother to ring the bell or anything - just drop them on the porch.
Using these chocolate chip ajuga to control erosion under my deck in full shade. Came in great condition and still damp in the soil. The flowers, which had to be pressed down to fit in the shipping box, have come back up nicely. I really like the color. Looking forward to them spreading out.
