Unespected: Just what I was hoping for!

Looked to be a bit of an Oddity on-line, and arrived as Wonderfully so! Fortunate timing, as on beautiful mid-bloom was present at delivery, and two more have appeared in the 10 days since. The Packaging of this and the other plants of my order was (again) Most Excellent!
