This arrived to me as a strong roots system with a few scraggly leaves. Long story short- a pet tore up the roots while burying something. The roots were truly shredded and I thought they were goners. I planned to just order another one but life got busy and I forgot. A few weeks later I saw that the attractive Marionberry leaves were flourishing, and the plant was back with a vengeance. I intend to buy these as gifts for my other zone10a/10b friends, especially those who struggle to grow berries. This is the plant that won't quit.
