Nope

Did not grow at all

Thank you for leaving feedback. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!

Beautiful plant

I have been thinking of options to fill out dry shade (with about 2 hours of direct sunn) bed under a massive magnolia and Ligularia seems to be a good fit not only because it’s a blooming shade lover but also because of the deer resistance properties.
It’s been two weeks since I planted the ligularia in ground (zone 6b) and the plant has never drooped or showed signs of transplant shock. It is well established and has already send out two flower spikes- can’t wait to see it bloom. Even without the flower spikes the plant is attractive with its unusual lush leaves and dark colored stems. This one is already a winner. I will upload pictures as soon as the blooms are open.
On a side note, this was my first ever experience ordering plant from great gardens - ordered 7 different plants (And I buy plants online a lot - multiple times each season).
Hands down this is the best experience in 8 years of receiving plants via mail. Not a single plant looked stressed. The root mass as well as top growth looked healthy. Not a single broken branch or wilted/rotting plant (I always have such issue even with reputable nurseries).
Despite of a shipping address goof up which sent my plants to my neighbor’s I forgot the annoying experience as soon as I opened the well package boxes and saw the happy plants. Including pictures taken as I was unpacking the plants.
All 7 plants are doing superb. I will add individual reviews.
