    I was blown away by the quality of my Desert King. This thing is massive! An abundance of branching and the biggest root system Ive seen in any plant purchased online or locally. I was blown away. Two days after planting and the buds are already opening. I’m excited for this one. I just wish it was a little more cold hardy for my zone – I’ll have to take extra precautions to keep overwinter it well.
