  • Great grass for gardens

    Received plant in great condition. It has done so well from the time we planted it till now. Would recommend this specimen because of color and growth. It established right from the time we planted it and has grown to 2-3 ft. tall. Love the grasses I have purchased from here. Great addition to my grass garden. Stands out.
