Review of Lemon Ball Stonecrop {3 1/2 in. Pots, min 25}

Lemon Ball Stonecrop Zone 5
07/11/2016 By Eleanor Paine

Welllllll .... I waited and waited for my 12 plants to reappear and got only 1 tiny sprout that is now about the size of a 50ct pc.
Def not Classy Groundcovers fault. The plants they sent to me last year were huge, healthy, and looked SUPER all summer and fall.
But the actual supplier shows these plants as perennials, hardy in Z5. Not true. I discovered several online blogs from buyers who had the same problem with this plant. In one case, the complaints about failure rate caused one supplier to re-classify Lemon Ball as a tender perennial.
The John Creech I ordered with this are THRIVING exquisitely in the harshest part of my garden.
Thank you, Classy Groundcovers for John Creech! Please do re-check Lemon Ball. It was such a huge disappointment because I really loved its bright, cheery color.

We have not had any other complaints about hardiness and we sell quite a lot of it. 15061 is actually zone 6 as of the last zone map update, I don't the cold was the problem and we ship this to zone 4 with no issues.
