        Took a chance ordering from this company for the first time ever. I was not disappointed. Received the item as promised during their anticipated date of delivery. It was packed well to survive the shipping process and adapted quickly to its new surroundings. Would definitely order from this company again in the future.

          We received are product in a timely fashion. Of the 24 plants, only 2 have had a rough time (seems 6.5 inches of rain in two hours, 17.5 in three days)due to being at the lowest point on our property. The did well. Can't wait till next year to see how they really take off! Thanks

            This was delivered late for our early, hot summer. I set out six plants, and one survived. I kept them watered, but the full sun was too much for five of them. Sixth pulled through and is thriving now.

              This is the easiest plant to grow. Mine are in their second year, and they are doing so well with the new growth. I took a clipping from one last year, and so I now have three. They are healthy without any additives of fertilizers. I am looking so forward to two months from now when they will bloom like mad!

                        I bought seven Russian sages; they were all small, undeveloped, puny, and I don't expect any of them to make it.

                        Planted this on a large slope with clay soil, no irrigation and full sun in a semi-xericspe perennial flower bed. The fine airy texture made a nice backdrop for echinacea. It does go dormant in the winter in USDA zone9. The remaining white stems are attractive however, they need to be cut back in early spring before the new growth begins. The stems can be somewhat brittle and can be blown over in high winds. The foliage has a pleasant minty fragrance when brushed against though some may consider it medicinal. A dwarf version is 'Little Spires'. A nice alternative to lavender.
                        Please ignore the cons--meant to enter it in the 'best use' box and couldn't erase it.

                          I live in the woods with lots of shade and deer. I only plant perennials because I'm basically lazy. I prefer a more natural look to my garden than a professional or showy look. This plant fits in perfectly--it comes back stronger year after year. It is attractive but doesn't overpower the look. I've ordered more that will be delivered next week because I want to put some near the pool!
