Looks beautiful and is already starting to flower after having it for a week. I ordered more but unfortunately there has been a delay from the supplier. The Faithful to Nature team has been wonderful in dealing with this situation. Thank you.

I had this send to a friend for her birthday. She was thrilled and loved it. Judging by the photos she sent me, the plant made it there alive and in one piece.

Easy maintenance and looks great on a brick accent wall. Note it comes in an open box (to aid in breathing during transport)
