      Answer This Question

      A:  Is this grass a perennial?? What is it's freezing point?

      by|Oct 5, 2020

        A:  Rose fountain grass has been listed as a non-toxic plant by Pawprints and Purrs Inc. This means eating purple fountain grass most likely won’t result in death, but it still can cause symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, depression or a combination of these symptoms. In addition, the blades of purple fountain grass are relatively sharp, and consumption of them may cause pain or dysfunction to your pet’s digestive system.

          Bought to compliment other similar plants. followed instructions but they didn't make it!. they would have looked m nice if they have it. it should have also been clearer that it was just the buns with dead strands of grass.

            Packaged great = hoping they grow as well!
            Packaged very well! I won't know the quality of the grasses until they start growing in the spring! But they were well packed, moist, and seemed to be mailed with care. If they grow as well, they will be beautiful.

                My plants showed up 3 days late, then they were mostly dried up and didn’t look alive. I put them in the ground to see what would happen, but they are not growing well. I knew they would also be small side, but it was a shock to get these plants in a 12x12 box all dry. I will not be ordering plants again. It’s been a couple weeks and they are very unlikely to survive even after babying them. Very dissatisfied.
