Customer Testimonials

Just you to know the Sweetbay Magnolia is thriving in my nursery bed for butterflies.  The flowers are amazing and they smell heavenly.  I bought it for Tiger Swallowtail caterpillar chew.  Now, I do not care if the butterflies like it or not.  I love it! Thank you so much for sending it to me!
