                  The plants arrived in nice packaging, with almost no dirt. Two of the plants were dead on arrival, the other parched and dried plants soon followed. Money was spent for two plants to survive < 1 week. I was shocked that this was what arrived. Total waste. Disappointing does not cover it.

                    I received 5 tiny pampas grass plants. They were so small that they hardly survived being transplanted to a pot; would not have made it in the ground. After some growth in the pots, only one plant survived well enough to plant. Would not recommend.

                          Upon receiving the plant was dead. When I called about it I was quickly offered to either replace or refund. I opted to replace and it is now growing just fine.
