What you're saying about us... Absolutely amazing is my best description of my first order receipt ever from you. I got home least night, and found the USPS man had delivered a box of live plants that actually had prearranged "holes" in the box. You're the first one I've ever seen do it. Then, I opened the box, and the plants looked fresh enough to make a salad. They looked like I had purchased them at a local nursery and simply driven them home from across town. My compliments, too, on the reminder instructions, and in particular "unless you're particularly adept at watering qt. pots." ...I am 110% satisfied.

Lobelia x 'Monet Moment'For years, Thurman Maness' Lobelia ‘Rose Beacon’ ruled the trade for the best rose pink. Enter ‘Monet Moment’. It has two amazing traits -- 1) immense flower size, and 2) MASSES of flowers. The vigor of this plant is extraordinary as well.  We usually sell out of this plant but finally got smart and potted more this year!

What you're saying about us...

(Lobelia) 'Monet Moment' got here just fine and are in great shape.  I am "transitioning" them as I write.  Many thanks for so much care and concern about the weather.  I used your printed out form and Bill, the postman, put them on the front porch as requested.  I have never experienced such great care and communication!  Bravo!

This hybrid is more adapted to normal garden soil conditions .

Lycoris sanguinea var. kiushiana  (kiusiana)       Spider Lily                  Zone:    

Lycoris sanguinea var. kiushiana         Spider Lily

A lovely bulb from Japan with showy orange blooms in August.  The form 'kiushiana' has longer, more spidery tepals than the straight species.  Called Magic Lily by some because the leaves appear in spring, go dormant and then poof!  Like magic, the blooms appear.

Lysimachia clethroides    Gooseneck Loosestrife     Zone: 4-8     

Lysimachia clethroidesRich green foliage is set off by the 8" arching white flower spikes along 2-3 foot stems. Put this where it has room to spread by underground runners or in a large sunken container. It's extraordinarily beautiful but it does spread, particularly if the soil is moist. BUT it is possibly the best white cut flower in the plant kingdom.  Very, very long lasting and stunning.

What you're saying about us... I recently received my order, and was delighted at the quality/health of the plants and the manner in which they were packed. This was the first time that I have ordered from Lazy S’S, and would not hesitate to do it again, and would certainly recommend you to others. I hesitate at doing mail order with live plants, but I was unable to find the Lespedeza ‘Yakashima’ variety around here. The ‘Postman Alert’ was very helpful and worked well for me.                                                                Mary Beth, Northford, CT  04-04-06
