Not the size I expected

Although these plants were as tall as advertised, their width left a lot to be desired. I found plants twice the size at my local Home Depot for $ 19.99. Was a little disappointed.

We're sorry you're not satisfied with your plants. We do note on the website that our plants are young. Your plants should fill out once established in your landscape. It's surprisingly normal for young plants to develope better shape as they grow! This isn't a change you will see in a few weeks, but usually after a few months. Your new plants are in the process of developing a sufficient root system, which will take place before any signs of shoot developement begin to appear. As always, every order is covered by our 60-day guarantee, so please contact claims@greatgardenplants.com to start the claims process if necessary. Thank you for your feedback!
