Very upright, vigorous bush. The berries are plentiful and sweet.
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.
First time customer. Thank you.
