Before placing PO for expensive diamond crape myrtle, I was a little nervous to order live plants on line. I worried about quality of plants, the way of shipping and services. It turned out as an excellent experience. The plants are absolutely top quality. The packing is so thoughtful. One of them bloomed on my wife’s birthday. We are so happy with the purchase.
