What zone do these grow in?

Asked by Emma March 11, 2021

Answers

I purchased at my local HD store (best price there if you can find them in stock). That said I live in Zone 6A and already had a rogue cold snap that dropped the temps well under freezing and the grass looks like it did before the cold snap. They were already too big to cover easily where I planted them. There was no zone indication on the container but the HD rep told me that they only sell what appropriate to this area. I see Miscanthus type grasses growing year after year successfully here so I decided to give it a go as a temporary hedge.

Answers

16" tall and powder dry soil. All 3 plants were dead. I watered and nursed them for 3 weeks with no response whatsoever. Save yourselve time and frustration buy directly from a local nursery. I found better quality and pricing and was able to pick them up the same day and not 2 weeks later

I live in NJ. Can I plant these in March or do I have to wait until it's warmer?

The plants were overpriced for the pot size (8 in) vs the Gallon containers I picked up at a competitor Hopeful that they will grow into a larger plant, but was surprised of the size of what was promoted.
