    The item arrived on time, and was the most well-packed plant I have ever received from an online nursery. It was very secure and has taken to its new home well. It is small, but was well-priced. It has made a charming, and hopefully lasting, gift to a couple's new home. They were delighted and planted it in a place of honor in the front yard.
