    A good plant, just perhaps a bit paler than I'd hoped. Time and care will see.

    This was a replacement after the first one arrived in a broken condition.

    It was replaced quickly with no problems at all, so very pleased with the excellent service.

    I would definitely use this company again and my first order of 15 Shrubs are doing well.

    Looks very healthy. It is to replace an old ceanothus, which is looking very sad, so hope it will prove a good replacement
