Arrived in excellent condition!

The plants were a good size/maturity. They were packaged really well, and arrived in excellent condition. Four weeks after planting, they have new growth and even some buds on one plant. Highly recommend.

Lovely little evergreen

The mature plant is very prettily rounded, soft and small. I have a number of them and the happiest ones are in part shade. Too much shade and they don't fill out. Full sun tends to fry them unless you water tons, and even then the color is a bit too yellow for me. Part shade leaves them a nice chartreuse. They do bronze in winter. Deer and rabbits find them tasty; plant in a protected location.

Ordered 6 of these, and planted them in June 2021. They were doing great, but did not last through the winter, and are now all dead. We are Zone 5 so they should have made it!
