Well, I can't really say. I ordered these (and several other species) on 03 January. They shipped on 06 January. Today is 17 January and according to the USPS tracking information that you shared, they are still in Texas somewhere. I am concerned that these plants will all arrive dead, or so stressed that they will suffer long-term damage. My order number is #45530.
