I ordered 4 palmetto plugs from Patio Plants. They notified me when they shipped (which was about when they told me they would ship when I initially ordered my plants) and they arrived within about 3-4 days. They were healthy and thriving. They gave me instructions to acclimate the plants to the sun for 2 weeks before planting them in full sun. I am super pleased with how this company does it's business.

Love all of the plants I've ordered from PatioPlants.com! As a college student living in New York City, I needed something that could withstand the harsh winter/varying humidity, and my forgetfulness when it comes to watering. Not only was it easy to find the kinds of plants I was looking for but Pam (one of their growers) even reached out to me via email offering suggestions for types of plants I should get and the kind of care I should be giving. They definitely care about their customers. I'll always order my plants from these guys!

Terrific experience. Ordered Plumeria, Yellow Dragon Fruit, Dwarf Namwah Banana, and Blueberry (Sunshine Blue Southern Highbush) back in November (2011) from their botanicalgrowers.com site. Plants were bigger than expected for price. All received in great condition, and all plants were carefully packaged. They did ship it a week later than expected which resulted in package sitting in transit over a holiday weekend, but it was packaged so well that the mild Phoenix weather didn't cause any damage. All plants have already broken hibernation, and banana and dragon fruit have already doubled in size. Will definitely order again.
I purchased some plants from these guys this year (2011) and all I can say is WOW! Plants all came in larger than what I expected and packed in the coolest peanuts I've ever gotten (they were totally bidegradable and melted in water...after a little reaserch on the web I found out they were EDIBLE! so no worries about my puppy chasing them around the floor) I will totally buy from this company again. Their site was very well thought out and the plants were very nice, plus the packing was considerate.

Have a look to their webside & tell me if you can agree with this:
VERY RARE, COLD TOLERANT AND UNUSUAL! Agave Attenuata Octopus- Also known as the "Dragon-Tree" or "Spineless" Agave, this strikingly beautiful succulent forms a trunk as it ages, reaching as much as 3 feet tall. Attenuatas flower spike is a thing of wonder, growing as much as 22 feet high and will either produce greenish yellow flowers or small plantlets, on its' entire length. This beautiful species produces leaves as it matures up to 5 feet long that are a grey / green, spineless on the margins and rather narrow at the base, wide in the center, and tapering to a soft point. Attenuata appreciates a richer, more moist soil than most agaves and flourishes in partial shade as well as full sun. An amazing plant for both indoors and out, adding a distinctive touch to any room or garden.
This agave is approximately 18" in diameter when shipped from the grower.
