Good service. The plants are very tall but as yet I have not had any flowers so this is the reason I have given them 4 stars.

These plants have struggled to stay alive even though they have been nurtured for months. I had to spray for rust even though they are supposed to be resistant to it.
On the plus side, I have a couple of pretty pale pink flowers on one of the plants now.

The first young plants I received were showing some signs of rust. These were replaced without any bother. The new plants are flowering and doing well.
