"Plant arrived alive and well - had been packaged and delivered saftely. The plant, however, is TINY - less than 2"" in diameter. I was disappointed in the size of the plant and had expected something more substantial."

These are a small grass but a standout in the flower bed. I love the variegated colors. Very cute and hardy.
