    Comments about Crocus Itea ilicifolia:

    First internet shrub order. Only place I could find this in stock.

    Arrived in 2 days in perfect condition. Well packed. Good sized healthy plant none the worse for its journey to me in its box.

    Wouldn't hesitate to order plants from Crocus again.
