Be careful...
Reviewed By: Kate (Erie, PA)
These truely are beautiful grasses, they thrive, are vibrant and beautiful to watch swaying in the breeze.....however. Watch where you plant them because as they mature they develope a root system that is so huge and compact that they are in that spot FOREVER unless you kill them!

Perfect!
Reviewed By: Savannah (Moville, Iowa)
Bought a few of these, they're great! Grew very quickly and the striping looks so great. May have to cut them back as they will probably get larger based off of how quickly they grew the first year. Worth it!

"WOW! $12.95 for a 2"" plant?? You could get your money's worth by spending that at Lowes and getting a 2 Gallon full ornamental grass...They have the most popular varieties there. I got a 2"" ornamental grass from another online company but I knew what I was getting as I only paid $2.99 for it!"

"Purchased and planted Spring of 2009. Grew about 2 inches from Spring through Fall and that was it. Never took off. Nothing like the picture of description. Hoping this season it will ""do something""."

"My plants arrived in good shape-no problem there.I was extremely dissappointed in there size. They barely measured 2"" in diameter! This will be a very slow start to my privacy screen I was hoping for. Definitely not worth the money I paid ."

"When I received this grass in the spring, it was quite small, but by late summer, I was receiving compliments on how my zebra grass was so pretty. By fall, it had plumes on it."
