    Healthy Plant

    The plant received in late September was absolutely beautiful. It was potted in a very large container within a couple of days. Currently, first week of November, it is thriving. I am thoroughly satisfied with my purchase. My mother-in-law had one of these growing in her yard when I became a part of her family. I did not know the name of it, so was extremely happy when I found it being offered here.

    Turk's Cap (Malvaviscus arboreus)

    The plants arrived safely and look great. Did not loose one leaf and they are growing new leaves almost every day. I can't wait til it is big enough to bloom! I did put the in a large pot where I can keep them on my porch and keep a close eye on them. Very happy with this company.
