Comments about High Country Gardens Buddleia alternifolia Argentea:
Don't yet know how to rate this plant...I have tried to grow it before and it just died. This time, because it was such a small plant, I grew it in good soil in a large pot all summer. It didn't grow much, but did put out a little bloom...and hoping for good root growth! I planted it in the garden in September, and am hoping for the best for next year!!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

One of my failures
from southern Colorado
About Me Avid Gardener
One of my losses; It was not what I would call a robust plant when delivered, planted in amended heavy clay where it was a slow starter but seemed to rally and then grasshoppers ate it (it was protected) and it never recovered. HCG sent a replacement which I planted in a large planter but it did not make it either. Sigh. Some things are not meant to be.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Hoping for a better group this year!
from Loveland Colorado
I called when I received my order in 2016 and let the staff know that they were in very poor shape and that they probably should ship me new ones. No they said, the plants would come back. They did not come back after a month of trying everything. When I called I was told that you were out of stock and to call back later. I kept calling and it was not until just before Christmas that I was able to order additional plants. I explained the history of the bad history and hat I hoped I would get better ones this time.
Service and delivery comments:
I am recommending high country Gardens to a friend only because I believe I will get better plants this year. I believe this because the service person sounded very empathetic to my situation when I ordered The plant replacements for 2017.
Merchant response: Good Day Bob,We are so incredibly sorry to hear about your experience with us! Often, many of our perennials are sent with little top growth, we are constantly cutting back new growth to ensure the plant has a thick, healthy root system that is ready to be planted when shipped. However, your second call to us does not sound anything like what we promise. We sincerely apologize for the curt response you received and we are certainly investigating the situation. Please know that we are truly committed to your success and satisfaction. We see that you are to receive a replacement for this plant soon. Please let us know how this second shipment arrives. Should you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to call us at 1-800-925-9387Happy Gardening!
First year in the Treasure Valley in Idaho is going well!

The plant was small when it arrived but grew a lot in the first season. I am eager to see how it looks this spring.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
