This azalea is a wonderful plantSeptember 10th 2016
Hilda Niblett Azalea - I had this Azalea when I lived in the NC mts. brought slips to the beach and they have done well large blossom after the other azaleas are through blooming . They are low growing and fill in their space . Don't know why they aren't more available. The ones I recently bought one died and the other is struggling. Very root bound :( They need high shade .
Hardy and Adds Plenty of ColorSeptember 10th 2016
Mozelle Hardy Lantana - Grows great in zone 9b.
AmazingJuly 13th 2016
Autumn Sunburst™ Encore® Azalea - This bush has really impressed me. It is planted in the hottest spot around the building, getting most of the days heat. It's as beautiful now as it was a year ago when I planted it. Preforms as promised.
Wonderful plants, bloom all season but winter.July 13th 2016
Autumn Coral™ Encore® Azalea - This is a beautiful bush, has held up extremely well. It is in an area that gets about 6 hours of sun and is on a timed watering system. It has preformed as promised.
Growing vigorously and putting out so much fruit!July 9th 2016
Hana Fuyu Japanese Persimmon - Diospyros kaki 'Hana Fuyu' - We love our tree. It arrived last year nicely packaged and ready to plant. It was a small plant and had 2 fruits on it. We put in the ground early summer and the plant just took off. The fruits matured and were enormous and delicious. We are now in year 2 and the tree has quadrupled in size and full of fruit. Can't wait till the ripen. Highly recommended! Im located in Dallas, TX
Nice colorJuly 8th 2016
Agastache cana-hybrid 'Bolero' Anise, Hyssop - Love the color just wish they were fuller
Beautiful Jacob Cline Monarda my favorites.July 8th 2016
Jacob Cline Bee Balm - Monarda - This year they are getting beautiful. It takes a couple of years for them to establish themselves and thereafter they are abundant. I planted them where they can spread out. That's the trick since they are "invasive" I expect long years of pleasure from them.
Chaste treeJuly 8th 2016
Chaste Tree - Vitex agnus-castus - My chaste tree has never looked back since I planted it. I has tripled in size and bloomed beautiful large blooms. I love it.

High Quality PlantsMay 5th 2016
Autumn Carnation™ Encore® Azalea - I have ordered these 2 times. A first order of 4 (summer), and a second order of 3 (spring). The first order arrived in full bud with a few flowers open. They transplanted with no set backs and bloomed beautifully. The second order the plants were slightly smaller and no buds, but it was earlier in the season. They transplanted well and are now in bud/bloom and putting on size. All of the plants were as nice as I could purchase at a local high-end nursery, but this particular azalea has not been carried in my area.

It's perfect!!April 6th 2016

The plants were great.November 11th 2015
Miss Huff Hardy Lantana - The plants were great but the delivery of plants were could have been better. They should have been taped to box. They ended up squashed and broken. What was lieft of them grew wonderful.
This plant will take some time....July 28th 2015
Purple Velvet Dwarf Crape Myrtle - Lagerstroemia indica 'Purple Velvet' - I have a couple of little blooms, but this is a small bush, and will take some time to grow. I am looking forward to next year when it really pops!
My all time favorite!July 28th 2015
Purple Smoke Baptisia - False Indigo - If you have deer (like I have), these plants are absolutely gorgeous! The flowers in Spring are just beautiful, and the shape this plant takes is just fabulous. I love the pedal leaves and the mounding of the top of this bush. I want MORE!
Super healthy and growing well...July 28th 2015
Purple Pixie® Loropetalum - It takes a while for this one to grow larger, but it is really doing well in my garden. I found the perfect spot for it, and it is thriving. I am so glad I read all of the care information because it really gives you a great bit of knowledge in caring for this plant. It may be fussy, but I love it!
Waiting for pink...July 28th 2015

Hopefully Evergreen.July 7th 2015
Autumn Lily™ Encore® Azalea - Am anxiously waiting to see if these Autumn Lily plants are truly evergreen. The leaves are really different (kind of fuzzy) from azaleas that I've had before and it's hard to believe that they will actually thrive in full sun. All 4 plants arrived in excellent health and I'm hopeful that they will soon be blooming again, as advertised.
Growing like crazyJuly 7th 2015

Shipping was quick, price was goodJuly 6th 2015
Autumn Embers™ Encore® Azalea - Packaging failed with one of the two azaleas I purchased but only one small branch was broken, one plant was a well formed specimen, the other had an odd lop-sided shape but both are healthy, alive and growing.
Beautful tree.July 6th 2015
Winter Flame Japanese Maple - I am very impressed with the quality and condition of the tree.
Osmanthus fragansJuly 6th 2015
Fragrant Tea Olive - Osmanthus fragrans - My fragrant tea olive arrived in great condition and even had some of the small fragant flowers.

Excellent quality!June 8th 2015
Hummingbird Plant - Dicliptera suberecta - Very healthy plants, although the packing of the 4th in with the other 3 led to some broken branches in plants of this size. No problem, the broken branches are rooting in my kitchen bay window right now!
Excellent qualityJune 8th 2015
Hot Lips Salvia - Sage - Plants arrived healthy and ready to thrive. I've enjoyed the multicolored blooms for over a month now.
Beautiful fragranceJune 6th 2015
Thrive Lemon Rose - The plant came to me very healthy and is thriving, But please beware though the rose buds are yellow and bloom yellow they quickly fade to white. And the fragrance is similar to a Gardenia, which is another favorite flowering shrub. I am very pleased with this purchase. Cons A bit pricey the plants on GD, but the pro. They are heathy plants...
BeautyberryJune 4th 2015
Issai Purple Beautyberry Bush - Callicarpa dichotoma 'Issai' - Received a mature, healthy plant in good condition. Planted early in the spring and in only a few months it is taking off like a weed here in zone 8b. Covered in small flowers and hoping for a good crop of berries.

Maui Red Ixora - Very fast shipping and great packaging! Would buy from again.
Great ServiceMay 26th 2015

Peppermint Smoothie Althea™ PP26551- Rose of Sharon - I am really enjoying the quality of my althea. I thought it was in great condition and of wonderful quality when it was shipped to me; it hasn't bloomed yet but it is sporting new growth which looks healthy. Spencer Young, an employee which I spoke with , was kind and helpful. Your site offers a lot of variety. The photos and descriptions are very clear. I enjoy looking at the different plant selections that this company has to offer. Darylle Buckley

Aucuba doing well since MarchMay 25th 2015
Gold Dust Variegated Aucuba - Aucuba japonica 'Variegata' - This plant arrived on time, went into my Asian style garden and is flourishing very well. Probably doubled in size so far. This was a replacement plant after last year some "landscapers" prune the bush back at the top. It died within a few weeks. However, I have high hopes for this new plant.
New favoriteMay 25th 2015
Miami Supreme Gardenia - Perfect! Thank you so much. I've already enjoyed many blooms in the short month that I've had them.
I love these drift rosesMay 25th 2015
Peach Drift Rose - I have placed several orders both last year and this year and have always been pleased with the shipments; the peach drift roses are thriving and I find more locations for them. I highly recommend Gardener Direct.
Aphrodite sweet shribMay 25th 2015

azaleasMay 25th 2015
Autumn Embers™ Encore® Azalea - Well, they're not blooming yet, nor do I see any buds that indicate that they will bloom. They arrived in very good shape and the folage is pretty. I'd sure like to see some blooms. Then I will write my review.
ExcellentMay 25th 2015
Creeping Dwarf Gardenia - Gardenia jasminoides 'Radicans' - Exactly what I wanted.arrived in good shape and are now blooming. What else to say?
Nice PlantMay 11th 2015
Florida Sunshine Anise - Illicium parviflorum 'Florida Sunshine' - Both plants arrived in good shape and are now growing in our yard. Love the color as it is a nice change from the regular anise with darker green leaves. We have always liked the plants we have received from Gardener Direct and have ordered quite a few over the last couple of years.
We liked them but cold snap didn'tMay 11th 2015
Edgeworthia chrysantha - Paperbush - We ordered two of these and both arrived without incident (except UPS doesn't seem to know the definition of 'UP'). Unfortunately, we planted our two shrubs just before the last surprise cold spell and one doesn't appear to have made it through. The second one is definitely sending out leaves. In any case, we have found Gardener Direct to be a great place for ordering shrubs.
Osmanthus OrderMay 9th 2015
Fragrant Tea Olive - Osmanthus fragrans - Plants came as order in great condition, flowering right away. Packaging worked well to contain the plants and keep them from being harmed. Overall very satisfied.
Anise, Anise, Who art the most beautiful Anise of all?May 8th 2015
Florida Anise - Illicium floridanum - I ordered two Anise plants to replace two older plants which were hit really hard by 20 degree temperatures this winter. One night and done! We were tired of picking up leaves so we wanted something "evergreen" and a must for us is colorful flowers. Our yard was honored Fall 2014 with the Gold level FL Friendly Landscape award so natives are definitely on our list. This was actually listed in their manual. These plants arrived in excellent condition with a few flowers. The packaging is so terrific, nothing could damage them during delivery unless a 747 landed on it. They were planted immediately with lots of TLC and watered daily for 2 weeks. They are doing great and growing new leaves with a few more flowers. Definitely would recommend purchasing this plant from Gardener Direct.
i love viburnumMay 8th 2015
Chinese Snowball Viburnum - Viburnum macrocephalum - Have been trying to locate this variety for a while, not available in local nurseries, thrilled to find it at Gardener Direct!

Arrived in perfect conditionMay 7th 2015
Pink Green Leaf Winter Daphne - Daphne Odora - I was very pleased with the careful packaging and the plant was in excellent condition. I'm sure if I had been able to get it planted it sooner, it would have been happier, but it is recovering and looking very healthy now (planted end of April, but ordered and delivered in early March). See Walter Reeve's daphne soil recipe! http://www.walterreeves.com/landscaping/daphne-special-soil/

Old reliable!January 22nd 2015
Variegated Privet - Ligustrum sinense 'Variegata' - The variegated privet really brightens a part shade spot in the garden and can be limbed up to make a small tree.
Tough, easy shrubJanuary 22nd 2015
Fruitland Silverberry / Silverthorn - Elaeagnus pungens 'Fruitlandii' - This form of Elaeagnus pungens is attractive and grows quite well in shade or sun. These plants fix nitrogen on their roots and can adapt to almost any soil except very wet.

Powderblue Rabbiteye Blueberry - Vaccinum ashei 'Powderblue' - Will order from you again!
What a great company!December 14th 2014
Blue Pacific Juniper - I ordered several Blue Pacific Juniper plants from Gardener Direct. I have ordered plants from other companies in the past but I have to say, the way these were shipped and the condition of the plants were awesome. I got beautiful, healthy plants that came in no time at all. They are in the ground and I am hoping this spring they will start to spread. I will definitely order from Gardener Direct again.
Condition of plant questionableDecember 14th 2014
Banana Shrub - Michelia figo - While it had an abundance of leaves and new growth appearing, some leaves were yellowed and spotted with what appeared to be fungus. I keep nursing it, and realize that growing conditions indoors are not optimum, but I am hoping that it will survive and will reward me on the deck this summer. I had ordered a very, very small one from another nursery a few years ago and it never grew! We live in western MA, and I know that this plant (one I loved when I lived in the "Heart of Dixie" could not survive the winter here, so intended to keep in a pot outside during the warm months. While it survived the first winter indoors, it didn't grow. I transplanted to the outside during the warm months and again, it did not grow. In the fall, I dug it up to pot and keep indoors. I could not believe how healthy the root ball was! I am patient and tried to nurse it along, but finally it dropped its 5 leaves while the roots still looked healthy. So, with this one and the larger size, I felt I would have better luck. I am not too hopeful but I am not ready to give up. I do understand this is a slow grower. If you all have any suggestions on the care as a potted plant I would appreciate your comments.
GREATDecember 14th 2014
Gulf Stream Nandina - Nandina domestica 'Gulf Stream' - The plant came fresh and very well wrapped. This was my first time ordering a plant on line but would do it again. I only wish I'd ordered a larger size but it will grow.
Happy with plants and serviceDecember 14th 2014
Liriope muscari 'Variegata' - Variegated Liriope - I ordered several flats of Liriope this fall from Gardener Direct. It was my first order from the company. I like the website. It provides excellent information and is easy to use. The order arrived quickly. The plants were packed well and were in great shape. The plants have been in the ground for a couple of months now and appear very healthy. I will definitely order from Gardener Direct again.
Love it absolutely! But...expensiveDecember 3rd 2014
Blush Pink™ Nandina - As a landscape designer, dreamed to try this dwarf nandina in the garden. This fall decided include it into the scheme. Bought 3 of them to plant in a group, and extremely happy with the result. Plants were delivered in excellent shape. These high quality plants added a great year-round portion of beauty to the garden. The only minus- pretty expensive purchase.
Glowing Embers Japanese MapleDecember 1st 2014
Glowing Embers Japanese Maple - Product arrived in GREAT condition as usual Hope the Winter isn't to bad on it Looks GREAT now
Awesome!December 1st 2014
Gaultheria procumbens - Spreading Wintergreen - Big, beautiful, healthy plants. Shipped quickly in great condition.
DisappointedNovember 30th 2014
Creeping Plum Yew - Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Prostrata' - Misled about the size. Not very large. More like a quart, not a gallon. Plants appeared very healthy though and still look good. Hopefully they make it through the winter successfully.
Serious company you can trust.November 30th 2014
Gold Mound Spirea - Spiraea japonica 'Gold Mound' - The plant was nicely wrapped, moist, good full shape for a 3 gallon size. It is my second order from Gardener Direct and I have not been disappointed.
Kaleidoscope Dwarf AbeliaNovember 30th 2014
Kaleidoscope Dwarf Abelia - Abelia grandiflora 'Kaleidoscope' - Love these plants. Impressed with the quality of the plants as well as the packaging. I also enjoyed talking with one of your Customer Service Reps asking various questions on cold weather .. in order to ensure no plant damage this winter.
Confetti Dwarf Abelia PlantsNovember 30th 2014
Confetti® Dwarf Abelia - Abelia grandiflora 'Confetti' - Love the quality of the plants and very impressed with the packaging of each. Nothing arrived damaged and thus far plants are healthy and look great in my flower beds.
So far wonderfulNovember 30th 2014
Japanese Cleyera - Ternstroemia gymnanthera - Plant arrived quickly and looks very healthy. It's been planted for about 6 weeks and so far its doing very well.
Autumn Twist Encore AzaleaNovember 30th 2014
Autumn Twist™ Encore® Azalea - The plant stock was fine. However, it is premature to give it an adulation since it is at best a juvenile. As a mature gardener, I think I can evaluate a plant much more accurately if it has been in my care for several years. We have another clon in our garden that has provided a magnificent second blooming this cycle. Time will tell if it earns a 'I like it' rating.
Just like the pictureNovember 30th 2014
Autumn Embers™ Encore® Azalea - Very pleased with the color and shape of the plant
Packaging was awesome!November 13th 2014
Italian Cypress - Cupressus sempervirens - Trees were a nice size, looked good. I'll no doubt be purchasing other plants from Gardener Direct when I need anything in my landscape.
Beautiful PlantsNovember 9th 2014
Peach Drift Rose - I received these quickly and in great condition. I planted them during a hot, dry September, and with frequent watering they have thrived. They had a great root system because it's November now, and they are still blooming.
Great productNovember 7th 2014
Autumn Angel™ Encore® Azalea - They came 3 in a box, a little cramped in there, but that would be my only complaint. And that's nit picking. Showed up at my door a couple days after I ordered them, looked great. Planted them late summer early fall and they bloomed a little already. Can't wait to see how they look in the spring. Thanks!
Healthy plants deliveredNovember 7th 2014
Slender Hinoki Cypress - Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Gracilis' - I have ordered from Garden Direct more than once and every time is the same, prompt delivery, well packaged, and very healthy plants. Thank you Garden Direct!
Fast delivery and Quality PlantsNovember 7th 2014
Carissa Holly - Ilex cornuta 'Carissa' - Very happy with my recent purchase. Plants arrived within a few days. The plants were very healthy, I will purchase from this company again! Thank you!
Autumn Lily Encore AzaleaNovember 7th 2014
Autumn Lily™ Encore® Azalea - The Autumn Lily Encore Azaleas arrived in great condition. It's early November here in east TN, and they are still blooming. We've ordered about 15, and haven't lost a one. Will definitely be ordering again.
BeautifulNovember 7th 2014
Autumn Embers™ Encore® Azalea - I ordered 5 of the encore Azalea's. Colors were Red/Purple/White. They came well packaged and the company was easy to deal with. My only issue was that 2 of the 5 plants arrived with literally hundreds of ants in the plants. It was strange as they were all packaged together in the same box. The ant plants were a mess! I put them into the yard and hosed them down everyday for about a week until the ants were gone before I planted them. Of course then I had to have Terminex over to spray my yard. But whatever. The ant plants are healthy, and I was a bit worried because they were a little droopy upon arrival. I still have blooms on the red ones and it's November 7 (Oregon). I will definitely buy more of these.
Excellent plantsNovember 7th 2014

Very pleasedNovember 7th 2014
Color Guard Yucca - Yucca filamentosa 'Color Guard' - Very pleased with plant. Arrived in excellent condition.
Exceptional Bargain!November 7th 2014
Autumn Bravo™ Encore® Azalea - The azalea is lovely, and is still blooming, sparsely because it is early November! I'm so impressed by the bloom color and the healthy, deep green foilage. But most impressive is the great care with which the plant was packed for shipment. I've never seen better. Don't hesitate buying from this supplier.
Fantastic experienceNovember 7th 2014
Fragrant Tea Olive - Osmanthus fragrans - The plants arrived today and I planted them all. This was my first time buying vegetation off the internet and I was worried about shipping damage, etc., but I have to say that I was blown away by your packing job. The plants were high quality, the soil was moist, etc…couldn’t be more pleased. Here’s hoping they survive their first winter in Seattle. We had our first bloom already and the smell is incredible. I recommend, both, the plant and Gardener Direct.
Fantastic!October 10th 2014

Autumn CarnationOctober 3rd 2014
Autumn Carnation™ Encore® Azalea - Received my Autumn Carnation azaleas 2 months ago. I am happy to report that they are doing well and are full of fall blooms! Thank you for sending healthy plants and packaging them so well. I will be back for more Encores from you!
So far so good!October 3rd 2014
Russian 26 Cold Hardy Pomegranate - I was nervous about ordering a plant that would, of course, have to be shipped, but I wanted a "cold hardy" pomegranate, so that's why I took a chance on buying from afar. I looked at pomegranate bushes locally, but was not satisfied they were the cold hardy version. My pomegranate bush arrived well packaged and arrived moist and in good condition. I unpacked it immediately. Some leaves started to fall off, and I knew I must get it in the ground ASAP. About 3 days after arrival (Labor Day weekend), I got it in the ground, kept it watered and crossed my fingers hoping for the best. I'm happy to say my pomegranate bush has new growth and is flourishing. I guess the true test is how it will weather the winter here in Albuquerque, NM. I am praying it will survive, as the winters are cold here, and that I will have renewed growth in the spring. Looking forward to fruit by the second year!
PerfectOctober 3rd 2014
Red Margin Bamboo - Looks great and growing. .. love the way they shipped it.
Good Quality PlantsOctober 3rd 2014
Liriope muscari 'Variegata' - Variegated Liriope - I needed 2 loriope and could not find these in local nurseries, so ordered from Garden Direct. They arrived in great shape and had been well watered before shipping. I would order from Garden Direct again.
Rose Creek Dwarf Abelia for shady spot in rock gardenOctober 3rd 2014
Rose Creek Abelia - Abelia grandiflora 'Rose Creek' - It was well packed and I received it with no problems. the plants were healthy and ready to go in the ground. It's been three months and I see growth and flowers. I hope it does well this winter. Thank you.
only plant shipped to surviveOctober 3rd 2014
Creeping Plum Yew - Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Prostrata' - this was the only plant out of the entire order that was packaged okay and survived
So far so goodOctober 3rd 2014
Wonderful Hardy Pomegranate - Punica granatum 'Wonderful' - This plant was shipped with incredible care. I've order plants off of the internet before, but this is the only one that came with actual soil in the container! Most are bare root with no leaves, etc. This looked as if it was from one of my local nurseries. The customer service was excellent! There was an error in their shipping system, so they sent out two to me by accident. Instead of rerouting it, they decided to let me have that one as well! That level of kindness assures me that if there are any problems with the plant, Ill be well taken care of. Thanks!
This company is a great find!August 22nd 2014
Apricot Drift Rose - I looked everywhere for the apricot drift roses to replace the couple of ones I lost last winter and then I came upon Gardener Direct website. For the price, what could I lose? Well the roses came delivered absolutely full and lush, and green with many buds. I would have paid twice the amount if I had bought them in my area. They are now settled in nicely, and Gardener Direct will be my first place to look for plants for my garden. Service was superb, and delivery was exactly as promised to the date. This company is my new great find.
peach drift rosesAugust 21st 2014
Peach Drift Rose - excellent customer service.
Vigorous plants in excellent condition.August 21st 2014
Hemerocallis 'Pandora's Box' - Daylily - This is the second order I've placed this year, the first was for a sedum variety Elsie's gold and a hellebore, Pink Frost. Both orders contained vigorous plants that transplanted well, my Elsie's Gold is in flower, while I won't see blossoms from this order of Pandora's box (I ordered them late) or the hellebore until next season. I have no doubt they will be exactly as ordered. I can't wait to order more in the spring!
ExcellentAugust 21st 2014
Fragrant Tea Olive - Osmanthus fragrans - Item was shipped the day after the order, received 2 days later in the sturdiest packing job I've seen. Granted the tea olives are supposed to be easy to grow, still, my plant was dropped into a planting pot, started growing new leafs literally the next day. Now I'm waiting for the flower buds.
High Quality Plant that is already blooming after 2 weeks!August 21st 2014
Vinca major 'Variegata' - Variegated Bigleaf Periwinkle - Arrived well-packed & easy to plant; it is thriving & has already also climbed 2 feet on our trellis; you must be careful, however, that it doesn't intrude on other plants so be vigilant about this fast grower.
Beautiful!August 21st 2014

Gardener Direct shipped immediately and packed well!

Purple Pixie® Loropetalum - The "Pixie" was delivered in the time stated and the packaging was so carefully constructed, that not even a leaf was damaged. It was a bit smaller than I had anticipated, but right now, I can't wait until it grows up so that I can see it in all its splendor.

Purple pixieAugust 17th 2014
Purple Pixie® Loropetalum - Beautiful plants; either planting 'shock' into 8" of topsoil w beach sand beneath or overwatering caused several branches to brown out...they appear to be now acclimating to NC conditions.
Amazing Grace PhloxAugust 17th 2014
Amazing Grace Creeping Phlox - I am creating a mass planting of amazing grace creeping phlox. I ordered this phlox 3 separate times and each time the plants were very healthy and quite large for the price. Great shipping too. Highly recommend!

Great service and quality from Gardener Direct!August 10th 2014
LSU Purple Fig - Ficus carica 'LSU Purple' - I live in central South Carolina and ordered the LSU Purple Fig tree from Gardener Direct - my first purchase from GD. Within 36 hours of placing the order, it was sitting on my porch. I was pleased to see how well it was packed into the special designed shipping box. Not a leaf was bent, torn, or damaged. It was as tall as advertised also. Within the day of arrival, I had transferred it into a 20 gal whiskey barrel planter. Since day 1, it has almost doubled in size and I will be planting it into the ground this fall. Can't say enough about the service and quality that I received from Gardener Direct. I will look no further than GD for my future plant and tree needs. Kendall McCormack, St Matthews, SC

Razzle Dazzle Cherry Dwarf Crape Myrtle - My new plant arrived in its 3 gallon container as described. It was very healthy and still is after several weeks in the ground. I've been very diligent about watering and keeping the surrounding area clear. I can't say it looks like the picture yet, but I have great hopes for it.

What an appealing little tree!August 8th 2014
Little Gem Dwarf Southern Magnolia - Magnolia grandiflora 'Little Gem' - As always from Gardener's Direct, this little tree arrived in an extremely healthy condition. I've never had a problem in this respect. Although it is young and probably won't bloom for a couple of years, the foliage is so attractive, with glossy and rich, deep green on top and a lighter, contrasting light green beneath. The new growth tips appear to be an unusual pinkish yellow which only adds to the appeal. The blooms, when they come will just be the icing on the cake. So glad I ordered this. I'm hoping that we don't have another brutal southeastern NY winter like last season. I believe this tree is hardy in zone 6, but I think it will need at least a year to really root in before it can withstand this type of harsh winter weather. I'll try spraying it with an anti-desiccant this fall, as well as deer repellent. This is one little tree I definitely want to hang onto.
Photos don't do it justice...August 8th 2014
Hilda Niblett Azalea - I was so happy with my first shipment of these lovely azaleas that I had to order a few more. As before, the plants arrived in perfect condition, very vigorous and healthy. The first shipment bloomed after I planted them and the colors are really breathtaking. I specifically ordered this variety as they do not grow tall, and these are now growing in front of a boxwood hedge. The blooms contrast nicely with that rich green backdrop. I'm sure they'll be gorgeous as they spread out with new growth. Just need to discourage the deer population as these tender azaleas probably taste as good as they look! I've been spraying them with deer repellent diligently and keeping my fingers crossed. I'd hate to lose these beauties. I really appreciate the quick shipment too. Thanks so much for the fine service.
Very healthy GardeniaAugust 8th 2014
Fall In Love™ Gardenia - Gardenia jasminoides ' Fall In Love' - I'm always surprised by the unusually healthy and vigorous condition of the plants that arrive from Gardener's Direct and this Gardenia is no exception. It arrived in such fine condition that it appeared to have just been selected from your greenhouse. How it endures the shipment this way is a mystery top me, but it is a tribute to the fine product handling that is provided without fail from your fine nursery. The plant is growing well in a new clay pot up here in New York and I can't wait to experience the blooms. I never have much luck with Gardenias, but this particular example shows none of the yellowing leaves that I usually have to deal with, so I'm very optimistic.
Unusual variegated foliageAugust 8th 2014
Don's Variegated Native Azalea - Rhododendron austrinum 'Dons Variegated' - Very attractive azalea, even out of bloom. Although I won't experience flowering until next year, I'm very impressed with the photos. Further, the plant arrived in very vigorous health and larger than expected. It's very happy in its new home and rooting in nicely. I'm always very satisfied with the quality of the plants I buy at Gardener Direct, as well as the service and packaging and shipping. Prices are not unreasonable for these reasons. Thanks!
Great service fast shipment no problemsAugust 8th 2014
Miss Huff Hardy Lantana - great service, fast shipment, no problems with service or quality of plants will order again and again

plants don't look very goodAugust 3rd 2014
Chinese Snowball Viburnum - Viburnum macrocephalum - When the plants arrived a week after you sent them out. The box was smashed and the plant looked like they had took a beating. I should have done something then but thought I could get them planted and nurse them back to life. They have never looked very good all summer. They still have there leaves but just look sick. I hope they make it through the winter. Thank you for asking.

Buzz is NON invasive & a butterfly magnetAugust 3rd 2014
Buzz Lavender Dwarf Butterfly Bush - Butterfly Bush is highly invasive on the east coast, the west coast, the southern coastal states & many states in the Midwest. It's banned from being sold in some states. This is a non invasive alternative & a butterfly magnet! My bush arrived in very good condition. I planted it right away & its growing strong. It has a beautiful lavender color & heavenly scent. I can enjoy this bush, knowing I'm not damaging the environment. Cut the spent blooms & it will bloom the entire summer.
Happy Man HereAugust 3rd 2014

Arrived bushy, healthy, & recently prunedAugust 3rd 2014
Yuletide Camellia Sasanqua - I have to say I've ordered some very leggy camellias but this Yuletide is bushy, healthy, and was pruned just before shipping. As I'm in Zone 6 I hope to keep this Yuletide as a potted tree to bring indoors in winter but based on this tree I will hopefully order some outdoor camellia next spring I can plant and leave outside.
