Small -- Like Half the Size of Phlox for the Same Price at the Garden Store

Maybe they're fast growers. But right now, there's not much to the plant. I've got what I hope is a good spot, but reading these reviews, it sounds like it's hit or miss.

3 out of 4 ain't bad?

The plants were longer in transit than expected and were a little dried out on receipt. It looks like 3 of the 4 took root and are growing. I won't know more until next year when spring bloom time arrives.

Disappointed

Planted these on a sunny slope according to instructions. They had water and were not really thriving from the start. Now they appear to be dead one month later.
