    We are having 90+ weather with no rain but these are still just as happy as can be. Even when I forgot to water them for several days after planting in this heat. Can't wait to see the blooms. It is full so any day!!

    Purple pillar Rose of Sharon at last!!!

    I could not find purple pillar at local stores. When I did find one by telephoning it was too expensive and it was not local. So, I shopped online. PW nursery was affordable and had good reviews so I purchased them. They arrived in very good condition fresh green appearance. I planted them the day they arrived. They are doing great. All 3 have gotten new leaves on them this week. I hope I get maximum growth rate as they are in safe sunny all day location and planted according to directions that accompanied them. I'm using them to hide telephone pole in corner of my back yard. I wanted something that would add blooms in August to my garden space. They came very quickly and in very good condition. I'm hoping to enjoy them for years to come. I would recommend buying from PW nursery direct. I really wanted purple pillar and they had that plant.

    Purple pillar hibiscus

    I bought 12 purple pillars and they all arrived in perfect condition. I planted then straight away about 2 weeks ago and they're all thriving. I bought three 4 packs of them, they were pretty small but very leafy and healthy looking. I purchased them to plant infront of a fence thats about 6 feet from the house, with this particular plant I should be able to still walk along the house when they're full grown and when I look out the window see beautiful plants instead of a fence.

    Beautifully packaged

    What a beautiful package this was. I've ordered from any suppliers and always cringe when I open the package to bags of sticks. This looked like I picked it up at my local nursery. Terrific job!
