First time I placed an order with this company I was looking for a heuchera that was sold out at the site I normally buy them from. Happened upon this company and I'm more than pleasantly surprised. The size they sell is exactly what I was looking for-a starter. Flat rate shipping was a plus too. So not only did I get the heuchera I needed, I tried another one and fell in love with it too. So much so, I used the coupon they gave me when I received the first order to place a second, which shipped today and should be arriving tomorrow. Love that they are a small outfit....they seem more personable. Looking forward to doing more business with them in the future!

Received my order today. Packaged beautifully, they even went as far as putting in some ice packs to keep the plants cool. AND they gave me a coupon for 25%off due to my order being delayed because of the heat. Great customer care! Love you guys!

|It is kinda late in the season, I ordered 2 heucherella on 11-11-11 and received them today 11-16-11. Packing was real good and plants were all tucked in very little dirt lost and slightly moist. I was very suprised to get a free gift which was the nicest smelling soap I have ever smelled. It's Goat's Milk soap and they have a new line of full sized all natural soaps. I cannot wait to put in another order so I can get more of this soap!!

|I have ordered from this company twice. Both times, the quality of the plants were superb. The packing was great and the plants arrived in perfect condition. Highly recommended.

|I too am absolutely astounded at the quality and size of the plants I received on 6/4/2011 - 2 Ostrich Plume Astilbes, in 3" square plastic pots about 4 inches deep and wrapped with foil, each individually packed in brown wrapping paper - the plants were about 10" tall and STILL WET!! Root systems were UNREAL! The packaging was fantastic - I ordered from eBay on Monday 5/30 (didn't bid, just bought) and they let me know via email that they shipped on Wednesay 6/1 - I didn't pay extra for the shipping, it was $5.99 for anything you bought, no matter how many. I planted them immediately and they are so fluffy and healthy- I am thrilled. So I ordered 3 ferns and a coral bell on 6/4 after I planted the astilbes - got notice today(6/7) that they're shipping via UPS and should be here on 6/13 - They sent 2 free fertilizer plugs with the astilbes and I got a coupon for 10% off if I ordered before 6/30 - they also sent an email stating that the spring has been very cold & cloudy in Wisconsin (where they're located) and that many of their perennials are behind schedule & some plants may be shipped just as they're breaking dormancy (weather exactly like what we've had in Spokane, WA this spring - HORRIBLE) but I sincerely appreciated that bit of information as I have a better idea of what to expect when I receive my ferns. I will DEFINATELY be ordering from this company again! Unreal quality for the money, inexpensive shipping, informational and FAST! What else could you ask for (the astilbes put my one year old plants that I ordered from Springhill Nursery last year TO SHAME!

|After placing an order on Ebay and another directly with their company, I am blown away. I ordered 2 hostas that were over 10+ inches tall on ebay. I followed that with another Ebay order for a bi-colored buddleia which was was small, but they grow like weeds here. I then ordered from their website. I decided I needed more ferns for our front yard, so I ordered 3 of their overstock ferns. I couldn't be happier. I received 3 ferns, a Christmas fern, a Ghost Painted Fern and another unmarked fern. All are green and healthy.
All their plants on their website are reasonably priced and shipping is more reasonable than from many other suppliers.
Thank you Casita Azul! We'll be back to order some perennials. It is growers like you who make me want to rip out the existing front lawn and plant flowering plants.

|I placed my first order for coral bells from this company a month ago. The plants were reasonably priced with very low shipping cost and arrived quickly. They were well packages and nice size healthy well rooted. I was so impressed with them, that 2 weeks later I placed another larger order with them. These guy are fantastic and provider quality plants at reasonable prices with good customer service.

|I received my order and was blown away by the beautiful plants that I got. They were so well packed that after 4 or 5 days in transit, they looked like they had just been dug. In my opinion Casita Azul has set the gold standard for absolutely beautiful plants that are well packed and shipped. Rock on guys. Pete

|I LOVE this company - very fast, low cost and absolutely beautiful plants!
I ordered eight heuchera, a "new" white coneflower and two hosta, plus I received a brunnera bonus. All the plants arrived in great shape, thanks to the expert packing and to Priority Mail taking only two days to get here.
The plants were (of course) a little flat after two days of being folded into brown paper, but in a couple of days, they were all fluffed back out again and looking lovely.
This purchase was a tremendous bargain.
The plants' root systems filled the 3" pots in which they arrived and they were transplanted immediately into 6" pots. The plants weren't huge like the gallon pots at the big box stores, but they're just as large or larger than the ones I bought on eBay for $25-35. And the coneflower from Casita Azul is much bigger than a similarly "new" coneflower for which I paid three times as much. Even the free brunnera is healthier than the one I bought on eBay for way more than I should have.
I will definitely order from this company again. The colors are a gorgeous addition to my garden and I can't wait to increase my collection, next year!

|I have ordered twice from this company and I love it. I have ordered several sedums from them and they were all healthy and good sized.
The Owners are the sweetest people and promptly answer questions and are very down to earth people that care about their customers. I will be ordering from them many times in the future and with the small handling fee they charge and free shipping they are an awesome company. A great company in my book!

|I was happy with my order this year. I ordered early in the year for May shipping. One plant never arrived from the hybridizer (a problem with tissue cultures) and Steve told me that I could choose a plant with twice the value from what we left in stock. I thought that was a very nice customer service touch. Prices were reasonable and shipping was free. Everything was packed well, arrived in great shape and is doing terrific in my yard.

|I love this online store. I bought coral bells that I wasn't able to find anywhere. The packaging was the best, the plants very healthy and still moist even though they were shipped from Wisconsin to Delaware. This business really goes the extra mile and the extra efforts much appreciated.

|I found Casita Azul via ebay. I was searching for some Heucheras that were no longer available at my local nurseries. I bought 3 Heucheras from them - via ebay, not directly from their website. And I wish I did buy directly from their site. After making the online payment on ebay, I was a sent a confirmation email from Casita Azul and saw their website URL on the email. I found out that the plants I bought were $4 less per plant and the shipping was $2 less. Their email was friendly and prompt and considering this was my first plant mail-order ever, I was nervous. The plants did arrive super-fast - within 3 days of ordering. The small parcel box left on my doorstep was a BIG surprise since I couldn't believe that 3 Heucheras would all fit into such a TINY box. The plants were very-well packaged and the soil nicely watered and moist, BUT the plants were TINY! They came in littel 3" containers and the Heucheras themselves were SO SMALL. They barely had a root system and were no more than little starter plants. The website advertises that all their plants have been winterized and are at least 2 years old. After seeing my Heucheras, these were barely 1 years old and had tiny little leaves. I don't mind paying $13.99 for one Heuchera but at least I want a larger plant. These will take at least 2 years easy to get to size. So for around $50, I received 3 little Heuchera starters. I am very disappointed. Casita Azul (if you order directly from their site) is very affordable. They charge only one-fixed shipping price regardless of order size, which is great. But for the size of plants, it was a rip-off.

|I have ordered from this company 4 times in the last 2 months. That should say it all. Casita Azul has EXCELLENT customer service! The plants I ordered were sizeable, healthy, and gorgeous! AND my gift plants were no ordinary run of the mill plants either! Not to mention, the cheapest, fastest shipping you'll get anywhere!

|I ordered two Samuel Oliphant sedum plants, and two sedum Sieboldii Mediovariegata. I e-mailed the company to find out the status of my order, and I received a response within a day. My plants didn't ship right away, due to the summer heat.
When they did arrive, I had totally forgotten about the free plants you recieve. The Samuel Oliphants were a little beaten up (due to shipping I presume), but they are planted now and are getting stronger each day. I have no doubt that they will come back with a vengeance next year. The other sedums looked perfect!
The best thing about this company is that they had two of my favorite (and hard to find) sedums. I can't wait to order from them again!
