  1. Fantastic, beautiful, healthy plants Review by winegirl27
    How do you rate this product?

    I am very impressed with the quality of the plants I ordered! They are beautiful, well rooted, large starter plants. I assume the size you receive is variable, but these are gorgeous. This particular strep, Purple Panda, is gorgeous as well! Forms a lovely rosette and blooms like crazy. (Posted on 8/12/2017)
