    My Red Beauty Holly was a beautiful plant; an excellent specimen; and very well-established. I'm very well pleased. Thank you .

    Absolutely stunning. Incredibly full and lush with new growth, healthy roots, and berries. Arrived with not a single broken branch. Definitely will order from Sooner again.
