Time will tell!!

I bought 2 small Lil Kim Violet roses of Sharon, now planted. They’ve lost their leaves for winter. Won’t know til spring if they survived. By then the 60-day guarantee will have expired. The guarantee is useless, and my little plants are “on their own” now for the winter. I hope they will survive!!!

Love it!

I love the Lil' Kim Rose of Sharons. So great to have a small version to put around the house. Can't believe the number of buds on them! Just full of blooms and color! This was my second order of them!

Looks nice , complements my violet rose of sharons well

Short compact size and hoping to keep in trimmed to less than 3 feet. Looks very nice and very bushy. Putting on flowers shortly after it arrived. Was well packaged and deliver was fairly quick.

Lil’ Kim is a winner

Lil’ Kim arrived looking healthy and with a great root system. It has continued to thrive and now has a few buds.

Lil Kim Hibiscus

I think it's great, I gave it to my sister as a gift and she loves it. My gardenias and roses that I bought from you all last year and wonderful- hardy and strong plants that we have moved a few times since getting them & they are still in great shape and much better shape than any of our plants purchased prior at Home Depot!
