Great shipment!

Arrived in good shape. It's in the ground and I can see buds coming to life. I have no idea if it will blossom this year it is 4 ft tall but needs to branch out.

Super Pleased!

Our tree arrived in good condition. Within the first two days of planting it we were already seeing buds form and others begin to open. Will definitely use Raintree Nursery again!
