Review Persian Shield15 March 2018The plants arrived OK after 4 incredibbly hot days, they are a little leggie but I don't want to prune them just yet. As they were in tubes and quite large plants I have planted them straight into the ground. After a week they are doing well, they are in the shade and are already starting to go more purple. I have very high hopes for these, they are so pretty and I am using them as coloured leaf contrast in a bromeliad garden.
