Bridal Wreath Spirea Bushes
The 3 bushes I ordered arrived quite soon after the order was placed, wrapped and boxed well, and in wonderful condition. We planted them outside our back porch so we can see them grow and enjor their shade as they grow bigger each year. These are one of my favorite bushes, evoking memories of when I was a child in Buffalo, NY, and they bloomed each May; we called them "First Communion Bushes" - and I still do! Thank you for your good and healthy plants and your wonderful customer service!
Very helpful on the phone; plants arrived promptly and in good shape, and continue to thrive. We are very satisfied and would definitely order again.
The spirea arrived looking ok. It’s planted and living its best life. The plant doesn’t look like the picture, it’s getting there. It’s happy to be in Colorado.
We appreciate your kind words and your Bridal Wreath Spirea Shrub order. Hope you both are doing well.
