Why cant this be shipped to Colorado?

Asked by: Ziggy40
Hi Ziggy40, this plant ships from Ohio. Because it's out-of-state, Colorado has soil shipment restrictions on incoming grasses to control the Japanese Beetle population.

Is there only one plant in the gallon container?

This plant spreads -- are there some "babies" included? A gallon container seems large for one plant
Asked by: Mondo
Yes there was only 1 plant and the container was not a gallon it was much much smaller. The container was maybe three inches across. There were no babies included.

Customer Reviews

1 gal. Black Mondo Grass is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Plants too small I had purchased 7 black mondo grass plants. These plants are very hard to find in stores so I ordered them on-line through Home Depot because I received free shipping. The plants arrived in perfect condition and were packaged very well. I was extremely disappointed in their size. I ordered plants in a gallon container which is what they came in but the plants were so tiny they could have been in a pint container and that would have been too big. I gave three stars because the plants were very healthy - I will just have to wait a few years for these plants to grow to the size I thought I was purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy unusual and evergreen Black Mondo grass has become one of my all time favorite ornamental grasses in my zone 8 garden. It takes drought once established and required little if any fussing with. It loves our soils here (acidic clay with some compost). It spreads but not aggressively making it a wonderful ground cover beneath shrubs which is where I have mine. It also will grow in part shade or full sun here. Whats more is also a beautiful color foil and texture in containers! A big thumbs up in my book on this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Purchase Ever! I ordered two 1 gallon black mondo grasses @$24.95 each with tax a total of over $52.00 I received two plants that were smaller then a pint. I returned them and purchased them elsewhere. I found the grasses for $11.95 each at 4 times the size. I will never order plants online from Home Depot again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too expensive. I expected that a one-gallon pot would have more plants. The pot was skimpy for the price, mostly dirt, so I spent over $50 for three small clumps of black mondo grass. If the Christiansburg Home Depot had carried this variety, I could have saved money. I have purchased that much grass in Tallahassee, FL, for about half the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great It was great quality & great service I will definitely do it again I had bought black Mondo grass online before from a different location and I was sent a little tiny three haired thing but home depots was nice & healthy good choice from my part

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great different colored plant I have only had these plants for a few weeks, so I couldn't rate them better. They are a great black with a little green on the new leaves. My plants are small and I don't know how big they will get. They seem to be hardy as I put them out and they didn't show signs of distress

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks good came on time and plant/grass was in good condition

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will buy again These plants showed up immediately and in great shape. They could have been shipped bare root as they had obviously just been placed in the quart sized planter- this would have saved on shipping I'm sure. They are now thriving in my garden.
