Diana Althea Shrub
This was the first plant I ever ordered by mail, so I wasn't sure what to expect. When my two plants arrived, they were about 4' tall and bare root, but carefully wrapped and nicely damp. I've had them in the ground for about a week now, and am just starting to see tiny buds getting ready to pop with new leaves. Very pleased! Thank you!
Planted 20 bare root Diana and Lucy Althea's about 10 days ago in North Florida (east coast side). So far they just appear to be sticks in the ground so time will tell. Green Thumbs wanted a review.
My River Birch did not make it so I was worried about the Diana Athena. It took immediately and bud popped out in about two to three days. It's doing beautifully and I can hardly wait to see the lovely blooms!
All three plants were a good size and well-packaged; after only a couple of weeks, they are covered in leaves and thriving. I had no prior experience of bare root plants but the enclosed directions were straightforward and I am very impressed with the results. The quality and size of the plants are not reflected in the price, they are a bargain!
