Beautiful plants healthy, arrived in good condition and great package. They are small so if you are ordering to give food to your caterpillars it may not be a good idea but if you are buying to let them grow and continue to attract butterflies good buy!
Started, lost them both in the drought and heat, could not keep them damp enough.
Have wanted these for forever. Didn't want to get caught picking on side of road. Now I will have my own.
