Red Crape Myrtles

I ordered 5 red crape myrtles. I was worried that they might be affected because I live in Florida and the USPS has been having crazy delays, but they came in just fine. I was surprised and happy to see that they threw in an extra little guy for free. I soaked the trees in water overnight, planted them, put some mulch around them, soaked the soil with water, and then in just a few days, they exploded with buds and leaves and are doing amazing! I can't wait to see them in a few years! It's always seemed risky to me buying live plants and trees online, but I was very pleased with my order, and will definitely order from Green Thumbs Garden again!

NOT SURE YET

I was impressed with the 2 day post office delivery and the inexpensive price HOWEVER 1 of the 2 plants came very depressed looking. My mom has a green thumb but even she is saying it might not make it. We received them about 5 days ago. The other plant is doing well. Will update later.

Green Thumbs Garden Red Crape 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.
