Customer Questions & Answers

whycan it not be shipped or sold in California anymore?

WE planted this about 30 yrs ago, and would like to replant, since most clumps are 10" or so thick and due to our drought, not looking as nice as they once did. and to thick to recover properly.
Asked by: Jerrie
Hello, thank you for your question. We do not ship this ornamental grass into California because, under Japanese Beetle regulations, the state requires the grass to be shipped with washed bare roots (remove the pot, remove all soil from the roots). The roots are so tightly compacted that the roots do not become clean enough for entry into California.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kinda puny Divided this plant into two clumps, planted well, watered as directed, will see what happens in a few weeks. Plant rather pale in color, hope it perks up.
