I bought this plant because it was less expensive then any other vendor I found on the internet and I also wanted to check out the qualify of the springhill plants. It had been several years since I had ordered any plants from them and had heard of several complaint about the quality and customer service. I was very happy with the quality of the plants that I received. It was well potted with good roots and leaves. It came well packaged and on the date they said it would arrive in an email comformation to me. I am very pleased and will order from them again.
