Greensleeves Kousa Dogwood
We ordered three Dogwoods. They came quickly and were to our surprise large and very healthy. . The entire process was wonderful and I would highly recommended New Bloons
The tree was received in good condition and it has been planted and hope it will bloom. I will order more in the fall or our planting time.
I truly was astonished at the level of packaging which protected my tree, as well as the apparent quality of the tree itself. The tree looked so healthy and was leafed out...Time will tell, of course!
The tree arrived in great shape box was bent slightly but the tree was ok. It looked good and was planted right away. Plenty of spring rain the last view days.
