In February, I had planted seed (from another source) in starter pots. When I saw no results, I ordered plants in mid May for immediate delivery to zone 9, South Louisiana. That time of the year is not the best time to ship plants, and I was concerned about how they would survive shipping, especially in 80 plus degree temperatures. You may imagine my surprise and excitement when the plants arrived in beautiful condition. They were beautiffully packaged and I recieved them in three days. After conditioning, I planted them in a partly shaded area of the rose garden, supplimenting with organic vegetable compost and worm castings. The 30 x 30 foot rose garden has been refurbished with new rose soil worked in, and is raised for drainage. The plants are doing well, with one blooming (sooo beautiful), and all six plants are sending out runners with new babies.
