The lenten rose plant is green and doing well. We are looking forward to the flowers. Two years ago we purchased one as well, looking forward to seeing it's flowers too.

Not only are they deer resistant but they’re evergreen! Love how they bloom. Anything from J&P grows well. I had a hard to plant shady spot and these were perfect
