Completely disappeared!

I planted three of these summersweet shrubs last year at our lake house. They were healthy when they arrived and seemed to do well before we left for the winter. Returning just yesterday, they have completely disappeared. No evidence of them at all. What do you think might have happened?

Hello! While we can't be sure of exactly what happened to your plants. it could be possible deer damage. In areas that experience high deer traffic, it can be common for deer to eat anything in sight. Please contact claims@greatgardenplants.com with your order number and photos of the plants so we may provide the best assistance. All orders are covered by our 60 day guarantee. We look forward to helping! https://bit.ly/ggp-guarantee

Not doing well

Can’t really comment on the plants. Ordered 2, both white stressed from shipping upon delivery. One struggling and not sure it will survive. The other is completely dead. I sent a message to the company asking for replacements; have not gotten a response yet.
So no actual plants to review yet.

4 out of 5?

I ordered five Summersweet plants. They were shipped and arrived in a timely manner, were very well packaged and all appeared healthy upon arrival. However, before we had planted them one of the five developed blackened leaves. We planted them and all five are still alive. However, the one that lost several leaves is struggling. It has developed some new leaves near the bottom where the original leaves were lost but it is visually in poorer shape than the other four. They are all planted along the Southwest side of our home in rock mulch that gets about five hours of sun dappled with shade each day. We are keeping them watered and we have also had plenty of rain.
Hopefully, they will all develop into nice shrubs.

We appreciate your feedback! Our team of horticulture experts would love to investigate further. Please contact claims@greatgardenplants.com with your order number and photos of the plants. Rest assured, all orders are covered by our 60-day guarantee. We look forward to helping!
