The plant came shipped in the most professional way possible, full leaf and moist, ready to plant, at the correct time for my zone 5a. It is a sturdy plant,18" tall, and looks ready to push blooms. It is Not a twiggy little thing. I planted within a half hour of receipt. Bush perked right up. I cannot wait to harvest a few berries, I have never had them before. Gardening is a grand adventure.
