Green Thumbs Garden Purple Craple Myrtle

Greatly appreciated this shipment being expedited to arrive while we were on vacation at our country house in Virginia. The shrubs arrived in great shape and were larger than expected. The plants are in pots and on drip irrigation until we can return to plant this summer.

Concerned

I got an email on March 9th that my order was sent out. It arrived late on March 15th. It was dark out so I had to wait until the next morning to plant them. They felt very dry, I soaked the roots in water for 2 hours before planting. Hoping for the best.
