    Rainbow Grove has consistently sent me top quality scions year after year. I don’t have to worry about what I will receive. These Opal plum scions are no exception!

  2. Nathan (verified owner)

    The scions arrived in good shape, with plenty of buds and with clear labeling. However, USPS shipping is not reliable. The package was delivered to us 8 days after it was shipped, enough time for the scions to emerge from dormancy. I grafted them immediately and am hoping for the best.
