I ordered two plants on May 14, 2007 for my father's birthday at the end of May. By May 30 (his birthday), he had not received the order, although my credit card was billed two weeks ago. The phone number on my credit card statement is invalid. They have no phone number on their web site. Don't order from these people--they still suck.

I have had a terrible experience with this company. I ordered the Hibiscus of the month club 1/2006 thinking it would be a good deal by saving 10%. I received an email that my order was being processed. After a month and not receiving my order I decided to respond with an email. I received a canned message that they were under new management and that they would reply in 24 hours. A few days later I received an email that my order was shipping. I received my order and it was in fairly good shape & healthy.

Mean while February goes by and by mid March I have not received any monthly orders. So I email. Once again get the canned message. After a few day I receive an email informing me that my order was be shipped for the two months and that they had fixed the problem and I would be getting regular shipments after that. The order arrived - plants were ok.

Then the month of April goes by and by mid May I have not received any orders. Thinking they would ship bi-monthly. So once again I send email and once again I get the canned reply under new management. This time I wait days and never receive a response. So I send another email and after a few days get a response my order was shipping. This time when I got my order one plant was normal but the other was much smaller like a starter plant. By this time I was getting frustrated and decided I would let it slide since I have a pretty green thumb and in a matter of weeks it would be large and healthy.

Well now it's mid July and I have not received my June or July orders. I have sent several emails and only get the canned response. So I guess I am out the other 7 plants I have already paid for.

I would advise anyone considering buying a hibiscus plant to check around at any local green house first and if you buy online make sure they are reputable with a good phone number to call. Also if you have never purchased from them before buy only one plant at a time at first so if you are taken to the cleaners you are not out as much, also stay away from Strictly Hibiscus I get the impression they are not a very well managed company and may soon be going out of business.

I ordered 4 live hibiscus plants approximately 3 weeks ago from I was kind of sketched out by the online ordering proceedure, which did not indicate it was a safe transaction, and the rinky dink receipt i received as an email, as well as the strange flat rate shipping for all orders. I should have called the phone number first, but didn't because it was long distance. The number is disconnected, and I have received no response to the many emails I sent. No plants still, and now the weather is starting to freeze most nights, so I guess I'm out of luck. hope my credit card # didn't fall into the wrong hands. I still hope this company will contact me and send my plants but I would warn others to be wary of this website.

On June 8th 2004 I placed an order for 16 plants. Not only have I not received the plants but the company does not respond to my phone calls or emails inquiring as to why the order has not been shipped. Looks like I have been ripped off. Now I will need to go through the hassle of petitioning my credit card company for a reversal!

This site is a definite DO NOT ENTER!!!!!!
