What a Bargain! Some bloomed the 1st year.
For the price of 10 for just over $20, I expected tiny plants. The ones I got were all between 24-30". A few even bloomed while I still had them in containers, waiting to decide on the best place for them. They did great all last summer, put out new growth. I am so pleased that I ordered 2 more bundles of 10 for this year. I'm going to use them as a hedge along a fence where the wind blows dust.
