  1. Elizabeth (verified owner)

    Very nice sized, healthy plant.

  2. Kath (verified owner)

    A well established plant in good condition. Best service I have ever received from an on-line nursery

  3. Virginia G (verified owner)

  4. Daniel K. (verified owner)

    As first, I found the pricing a little “spicy”. Once the plant arrived, I fell in love with PlantVine. BEAUTIFUL full plant. It’s taken it a few days to recover from its long and hot journey…but it’s specimen worthy and happy now. I will DEFINITELY be using them again.

  5. Janet (verified owner)

    Beautiful healthy as described plant! Reasonable price given the maturity of the plant. Sure, I could have gotten one at half the price from another on line vendor, but it would have been a stick with a leaf! The plant was packed nicely too! I will definitely be back.
