When I received these I was really disappointed. They looked small and a little wilted. DON'T WORRY !!! I planted them anyway and WOW. The following year they were gorgeous ! It takes a little patience but you won't be sorry. I wish I had ordered more, but they sell out quick.

I bought several sets of these in 2016. they were all very healthy plants and they all took off once established-- which took a month or so. I was really pleased with these. I just wish Michigan Bulb would stop using neonicotinoid pesticides--- these are really BAD for bees and other pollinators. That's the ONLY reason I no longer buy from MB. :-(

I helped in friend's garden last year (2014), she had snow in summer & it Glowed! Silver gray foliage. Who would think a white flowered plant could be so stunning? Not me, but it was & I want some! Sold out currently! Damn!

I planted these in my border and when they showed up in May with white flowers, they added beauty to my garden. The plants I bought from Michigan Bulb have all survived even when I forgot them for days and left them in boxes. I will definitely buy more.
