Ornamental Grass

I was somewhat disappointed in my order, grass looked like it was cut back. Not very tall and looks mostly yellow. Hopefully it will do better now that I have planted.

I could have gone to Home Depot or Lowes and purchased ornamental grass that already looked pretty. This doesn't at all.

At least when you go local you can choose the ones you want.

Thank you so much for

Thank you so much for the great packaging job! I am very happy with my order and the excellent timing for delivery. Thank you to Billy for his great message!!
