This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This was our first live plant purchase from Park Seed. When the three plants arrived, I was dubious about the chances of them growing at all. I followed the directions in the planting, and initially appeared one of the roses died. However, with minimal attention, all three have thrived for the past 5 months, and have bloomed twice. I'm a believer.
