Gardeners' Notes:

I purchased 13 of these at $37.99/ each from one of my local garden centers. They were grown by Monrovia. One of them began to look bad a couple of months after planting, then another, then a third, so I wrote Monrovia hoping to get some pointers only to get no response. A month or so later and two more plants looking bad I made a post of facebook and finally got a response. I ended up speaking personally on two occasions with a gentleman in charge of the company (or in some prominant position). I also have a couple of e-mails from him. I had not been looking for replacements, but he offered them to me. At first it was going to be full replacement and then it became something less. It has been over a year now, all of the plants died and are in my compost heap along with the tags. I wound up replacing them with japanese yew. They are doing well. The only help I got was from a professional from the LSU ag center. He said that this type of vibernum was prone to certain fungi and root rot.
