Porcupine Grass

It came in 3 gallon container, very healthy, full, not trimmed.

Miscanthus sinensis 'Strictus'

5 plants purchased from greenerearthnursery.com. They were packed beautifully, but all were severely root bound and required a great deal of time to try to prepare for planting.

Arrived well packed and ready to go. Looks good and healthy. Put it in the ground and will see how it comes out in the spring.

Porcupine Grass Shipped to Chicago

Hi there,
The grass you sent is doing nicely in our little garden! We were initially worried because the strands of grass were brown and dry upon arrival. But after about a month after being planted, new healthy strands are green and growing. The plant also appears to be getting larger, which we hoped it would. Thank you!
