Ordered 3 of these along with 2 butterflyweeds (tuberosa)! antelope horns were you’re typically younger plant height which is fine as I have ordered from here in the past and it is expected with the pot size. Grows very horizontally just like the seeds deecription says and had perfect green leaves! no yellow which is good! I believe the plants have thinner stems at a younger age so please be careful with them! I was super cautious with mine, but they are happy plants!
