    Q:Will the leave cut you?

    Answer This Question

    A:  The blades/leaves will not cut your hands when you handle them. I assume this is reason for question. I don’t really touch them until I cut them back in March (zone 7), but usually wear light weight garden gloves, as a rule. Gorgeous plant!

        There were no planting or care instructions enclosed. Plants were smaller than I expected due to their cost. I later saw same grasses at a local chain store for less than half the cost and they were much larger plants. All plants did arrive alive and hopefully they will do well after planted when temperatures get warmer.

        They are starting to grow after eight days.
        I’ve read some of the other reviews so I’ll try to cover those as well. Yes they are small (1 gal). The tops are cut back and dormant. However, they are nicely packaged for shipping. The most critical part, the rootball, are wrapped in LOTS of plastic are each were very moist. Dug a hole twice the size (something to be said for a 1 gal container) of the rootball added some fertilizer, watered every other day. Eight days later there were signs of growth.
