Several times a year we import plants just to get some unusual things for our customers. This is one of those. They have good roots and look good. There are a few blemishes on the foliage but this is typical. Usually we wait a couple of months before offering imported plants to make sure they will grow okay, but these look so good we decided to offer them now.
