"I was not expecting perfection due to the other reviews, but I had bought this once for my mom and remembered that it was beautiful and smelled great.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the package was that the plant was covered in buds, with just a few beginning to open and one or two already open. Yay! Perfect timing. I ordered it on May 15th or so. The flowers have a strong and heady perfume that fills the room, and only a few of them are open! Good thing I like the way they smell.
The next thing I noticed was that it had no bonsai shape and seemed to be a branch planted into a pot. Oh, well. It means I'll get to do the bonsai shaping myself, which could be nice. As I look at it, I suppose it sort of has a shape - it resembles a fruit tree, sort of. Not very exiting - very upright.
Anyway, I'm still glad I bought this. I feel like I can turn it into a really beautiful flowering bonsai."
