Roberta's 4-pc. Alpine Rainbow Mix Cliff Maids Collection
Not too bad
I planted these last year in the spring. Did not have high hopes based on other reviews. Bought two sets - I had 5 places to plant in rock garden. Not many flowers last year. This year 2013 - one did not seem to make it through the winter - but 3 of the other 4 are in full bloom by Mother's day - the fourth is catching up to her sisters - just starting to bloom today 05/13/13. The 3 in full bloom really look beautiful - colors are awesome and tons of flowers. I have not even watered or fertilized because I know these like a drier soil - just let the natural rain do its thing.
So far very pleased...
These arrived earlier than expected, so I haven't been able to plant them yet.We are still having nights in the low 30's in Maryland.
However, the packaging was excellent and my plants arrived in perfect condition. The size of the ones I received look exactly like those pictured.
For now mine are growing and looking healthy in their little pots. I have all of the plants I'm unable to put in the ground on a garden cart that gets wheeled into the sunshine during the day and into the garage at night.Here's hoping they like my garden and bloom.
Two very pretty little blossoms
on two of the plants immediately after they were planted, then they quickly died down and that was that. I kept hoping that they would start growing, with all the TLC the bed received, but nada. Roberta's wants to send me new ones, I'm at the point in life that I can't just keep replanting the same things with no results. It's a chore to get anything in the ground, so I'm not happy with the "warrenty" that Roberta's makes. With all the money I wasted last year on plants, I should have a yard full of plants blooming, but that's not what I find. I'm going to purchase a couple of new things this year and if these do no grow, that will be the end of my purchases from this company.
I have had the worst, absolute worst, experience with plants from Roberta's. I have ordered on more than one occasion because the presentation is so sellable. DO NOT purchase plants, bulbs, etc. from Roberta's. They are the worst ever! I ordered the daylillies to begin with. Anyone can grow daylillies, right? Not from Roberta's. I forget that I had ordered my daylillies from Roberta's, thinking I had gotten them from Cottage Farms...and ordered some begonia's. Needless to say I am into rather large amount of money for purchases from Roberta's with no pay out. Yes, I am not a Master Gardener, but I am no novice either. Biggest waste of money I have ever spent......
When I received these plants (4 per order), Roberta's did not include a phamplet of instructions. My plants are alive but are not growing never mind flowering. Help.
Mine have not bloomed yet but the plants are healthy and growing quickly so I'm confident that they will bloom as promised this summer. I wish I had gotten more than one set.
!!! DISSAPOINTED !!!!
I had received these about a week ago & when I opened the box what a dissapointment.I had planted them right away hopeing that I might beable to save them boy was I wrong.I had sprayed them with Roberta's flower magic , it did'nt do any magic for these flowers.I had to pull them up & go to the local flower shop .SAVE your money buying flowers that you can't see first.I will give it 1 star for arriving at my house
VERY PLEASED! and they're not even at my house....
My in-laws had asked me for suggestions for window boxes located at their poolhouse, away from any source of water. I suggested these and the hens and chicks. When mother-in law received them, one already had blooms. I have NEVER received any of my plants with a bloom. Yesterday, which was 2 weeks later, I saw them and they're having babies too! I'll be getting me some of these after they get a little bigger! Can't wait to see other reviews. Maybe I should have ordered these and kept them for myself.
