I have both Snow Queen and Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangeas. I can definitively say that Ruby Slippers has a much better form than Snow Queen Oakleaf Hydrangea. The form is tidy, dense, and compact, and the flowers rest nicely right on top of the foliage. It's also tough as my roofers dumped a pile of old roof decking and shingles on top of one of my Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangeas and broke several branches, but it is bouncing right back.
I bought one of these last summer. It was healthy upon arrival and was a fighter - remaining robust until the Fall frost shut it down. This plant seems to be a fairly slow grower - but I can work with that.
I'm looking forward to purchasing several more in the Spring to help complete the vision I have for my front yard. Thank you!
I have several varieties of dianthus. This Raspberry Ruffles variety smells heavenly. I grow them in containers all along the railing of my porch.
These guys arrived small and in really nice condition. I didn't get to plant them right away but kept them out of direct sun and watered and they did fine. Planted them in a narrow bed around my bay window. They didn't do so well over the summer but I was hand-watering and other, better established hydrangeas in this area did fine. Even still, they tried to crank out the blooms - I got 3-4 blooms on tiny plants and they kept trying to put out new leaves. All plants survived the heat and a major freeze. This is a north facing bed but we just had a record hot summer so I'm hoping for them improve this year with better established root growth.
Plants arrived small, but in great condition. I followed instructions and planted in two full whiskey barrels - looking for a cascade over the edges of the barrels. Plants had all summer/fall to establish themselves, and even in the worse drought in history they tripled in size. They set a ton of flower heads but just didn't finish opening before fall. Expecting a really nice display this year!
I'm a beginner gardener and have several plants from Great Garden Plants in my balcony "garden". I've been pleased with all of them, but this dianthus has been amazing. I'm in Philadelphia, and there were flowers on it until DECEMBER! (Ordered and planted in spring 2022 btw, writing review in Jan 2023.) My favorite plant out of all of them!
Beautiful tree. Came larger than expected with a shiny red wrapped pot and an ornament!
No broken branches or browning. Will probably buy again next year if offered.
I left a one star on my review, since then I will say that they did an excellent job on customer service and refunded the full amount. Had no more in stock, but I will order again when in stock. Could not just edit my review so in fairness to them I left it here.
It's been settling in for a few months now and is thriving! I can't wait for Spring!
Delivery was fine, although upon examining the plants, one was obviously struggling. It had very little green growth and some brittle ends were broken, indicating dry/dead stems. All planted within a few days but that same one has not survived - it is now all brown, brittle, and shows no growth. The rest look fine and even showed some growth before the colder weather set in.

They arrived in great shape looked beautiful and are doing great
It is with broken heart and tired minds, that I have to report that my beautiful Tuf-Stuff Mountain Hydrangeas have died. They were so beautiful when they arrived to me. But overly hot (115) days & nights (80's) and now drought watering restrictions only 3 days a week and now cold to freezing temps (29 to 35) have done my beautiful Drama Mama's in. I tried everything during the heat and everything during this horrible cold to keep them alive. I truly am depressed about them. I have a very tiny front yard and I am desperately trying to bring in some flowers, besides roses (not much of a rose fan). So I am now looking for something else and I will eventually find something, but I took such loving care of these, and they could no longer stay. So depressed...
Hello! We're sorry to hear that you've had a difficult gardening season. It is more likely that your hydrangeas have gone dormant and are not dead. It is normal for hydrangeas to lose their foliage in winter. Once spring returns, your hydrangea should bounce right back to life! If you have any additional questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, as we are always happy to help diagnose any potential problems.
I have a lot of HEUCHERA forever red and apple twist are my favorites!
Do exceptionally well in pots, they thrive on neglect, don’t like to much fertilizer
They don’t like to much hot summer sun either. Just watch if the heave out of soil in winter need to be replanted a little further down in soil . The flowers attack hummingbirds and they are perennial in my area zone 7B.
Your plants always arrive in great condition
It arrived very well packaged. It is thriving and looks super happy.
Hi. I received plant but it was drying and when planted back ground in my garden, but my gardener didn’t recognize it and stepped on to break…sad.
I hope it will come back next spring.

I ordered so many plants and shrubs from Great garden plants affordable and healthy plants!!!
Just had to join in on the reviews. But I had ordered several different varieties 15 in all. I worried about the last batch, and I have been babying them all, due to extreme heat and now colder than normal temps. I Truley am SO VERY HAPPY WITH EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. They are already trying to grow more, and they should be relaxing and chilling out, LOL. SO many thanks to you and this company, for all you do to keep us happy and with the beautiful plants that have been sent. Now I have to figure out what to put with them.
These plants are not worth planting.

The green velvet boxwood has satiny green leaves that make it shine. I planted them a few days after receiving, and they have been doing well and there’s even new growth already! I’m using the boxwoods for a wind and privacy barrier in front of my tiny home. I’m very happy with the quality and beauty of these little boxwoods.
I was very happy about the condition of the two plants I ordered. I put them in the ground a few days later, as recommended. And I'm eager to see how they grow and spread in my garden as ground cover, come spring.
The assortment was nice, the plants appear healthy and so far they are doing well.
As a new gardener with low confidence, I thought a company that offered a guarantee would be best. WRONG. Last summer, I ordered roughly $1200 worth of plants from GGP. Alas… only 6 of the small struggling plants survived. Keyword, survived. Not thrived. I mean, small, weak stems, broken stems. I spent most of my time with these plants playing doctor trying to revive them. Another 6 are still struggling in their barely living state, while I battle with their issues.
Meanwhile, the local nursery provided dozens of thriving well established plants that were ten times the size for the same price, and they are all doing exceedingly well.
To GGP’s credit, they did provide hassle free replacements or refunds- I mean, that doesn’t give back the hours upon hours wasted trying to mend their struggling plants.
I wish I had avoided them all together
