My plants came just as described! Beautiful and healthy! I will be shopping from Perfect Plants from now on when needed.
SUPER happy with the 3 pack of jasmine that I just received in 2021. I had purchased a 3 pack last year, 2020. They were pretty puny & really struggled to survive the El Paso summer -- my sister even commented that she wasn't sure they were going to make it, but they did. I bought these 3 to fill in the space & it was AMAZING to see how big these 3 were. They are doing fantastic so far.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are thrilled to hear everything is going great with your Asiatic Jasmine Shrub. Hope you are too.
The plant arrived without a planting guide :( not happy about that as the AMAZON blurb says it comes with a planting guide. It did come wrapped in a plastic bag- good thing because the dirt was all over in it. Some was still around the plant- and that soil was only somewhat damp- not thoroughly dried out. Two of the branches were broken- but the rest look to be okay. I have ordered many plants online and they have been packed well and arrived in great condition- this one not so much. I'll have to monitor and see if it thrives or was shocked too much in shipping and does not do well. This plant was sent as a gift. . .our beloved cat, Jasmine, passed away last week and this was sent as a namesake remembrance - I do not want to see this die as well. It will break my heart.
