I got my Sisyrinchium from ebay last year, eight actual plants when only five had been promised.
Not only were they lovingly wrapped and posted, but grew into a sizable clump waiting for division just one year later.
I was thrilled with this experience, BUT, on the whole, I don't use the Internet for plants for all the reasons above. I like to see it with my own eyes, smell it, touch it, judge its form and habit, note the exact -exact- shade of flower and foliage, none of which can be done to my standards in the virtual world.
The internet has its uses but I will always prefer the hands on shopping experience
