I have purchased from Busse 3 times. I have had inconsistent results the past two years with the plants I received from them. I have had a fair number of plants not survive to the second season. I ordered from them again this spring in hopes that these plants will do better. I have hundreds of perennials in my yard so I don't think it is my lack of experience that has attributed to these specific plants failure. I think that the plants they send are rather small and packaged only adequately. Since I live only a short distance from the nursery, it wasn't because of long transit time that they did poorly.
