Does not do well

About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Panicum virgatum Shenandoah:
I ordered 3 of these last May. First ones were dead upon arrival, but promptly replaced by customer service, who were great! However, the replacement plants never did well. After a full summer of being cared for and watered regularly, in a warm summer climate, they barely grew at all. I had to fight wild grasses sprouting up all around them, growing at 10x the rate these did. They did not produce a single seed head last year and did not show a lot of color at all. This spring, I do not see any green color come back, so I think they did not make it. I will wait a little longer, but as other plants and grasses have started to come up, I am not hopeful. These were not exactly cheap, and the plants sent were tiny, and not very healthy. Even the replacement plants were not great looking. Would not order this again. Poor value for money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A beautifully colored grass
from Smith Valley, NV
I love the fall color of this grass. Unfortunately, the rabbits love it so at least for now, it lives in a cage.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Loveliest Grass in my Garden
from Longmont, CO
This is the loveliest grass in my collection of grasses. I can hardly wait for the fall when its color is so spectacular. It is also provides interest in the winter -- provided the snow doesn't get too deep. I have recommended this grass to all who ask.

It is easy to grow and beautiful year round.
