from Dallas, Tx
Bought four to use in a 3'x 3' square by our patio; two on each side. One side didn't get enough sun to give it a start, but the other ...Man - it's still growing and it's wayyyy over 3.5' tall, and 2' wide!So, the description led me to think it'd be good for that spot, and it isn't. That's not ot say the plant isn't good; it is. Just not for our small yard/patio area. (Now, I've got find another home for it, since we don't have a place anywhere here.mmaybe the others reviewer would like it!)I'd recommend with caution.

from Eugene, OR
The plant arrived as a very small example of a very large grass. There were only a couple of 2" leaves. I planted it in a gallon pot so I can grow it up to a size to place in my yard.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Good Day Zone denial 1,We are so sorry to hear about your disappointment. Many of our perennials are sent in small pots with very little top growth as are constantly cutting back the growth to ensure all of the energy is put towards the root system. We found that is was very difficult to send plants in larger pots as they tend to struggle in transit. We came up with system of sending small plants but with very extensive root systems so once you receive and plant it, it should establish quickly. Most of our perennials take about 2-3 years depending on the growing conditions to reach maturity. We sincerely apologize if there was any miscommunication when you placed your order.
