    Arrived quickly and in good condition. Potted them up in the recommended gallon pots to hold for a couple weeks. These are bigger plants than I expected.

    Ouachita arrived earlier than expected and in fantastic condition. Even baby plants from BU are bigger and healthier than any other nursery. What a great packing job to send plants of this size. Kudos to BU for their commitment to quality products. Thank you.
