Thank-you for posting your experience. It provides even more evidence that these guys are just no good. As you see above, they've continued to claim my black beauty is a black beauty when it clearly is not. I hate to use the bottom of the bucket reference, but these guys are starting to look almost as bad as the infamous Ty Ty. I've heard there is some kind of connection between the two- if so, thats all we need to know.
I'm one of these people who will spend $200 worth of time and effort on a $20 rip-off, so I'm going to make them my special project until they resolve this. That may include reports to Better Business Bureau, Consumer Affairs Division of the State of Georgia, reviews on sites like Dave's Garden and every other place I can find to review them (including google, where anyone looking them up can see them) and many more. As a bureaucrat myself, I'm pretty good at working my way through the system and bringing pressure on unscrupulous businesses.
Seeing your post really confirms my suspicions that they didn't make a one-time accident by sending me the wrong tree. I am starting to think they are in the business of selling standard, seedling mulberry trees as grafted Persians and others. There are way, way too many cases of this out there. I can't just lay down and take it.
