    unique grass

    Posted by Lizzie on Feb 17th 2020

    this grass is so cool. Just had to purchase this for my yard when I saw it on Facebook. Can't wait for it to grow even bigger. I planted 7 of these next to each other for a cool looking pink landscape!

    I just purchased 5 of these to make an edge in my landscaping. The plants were a little smaller than I thought they would be, but all came in great shape. I'm excited to see what these look like once they grow a little bigger! Would have given it 5 stars if the plants weren't so small.

    Traffic Stopper

    Posted by Dee on Oct 7th 2018

    I wait all summer for this plant to start turning pink in the fall. Traffic actually stops on my street when this grass is bright pink. Such an easy plant to care for, but provides great color, and is something all of my friends ask about. I'd recommend to grow this to anyone that can!

    Posted by Allen on Jan 28th 2018

    After this grass was planted, it started to turn more and more pink. Daughter still doesn't care about it, but they do look nice. Overall the plants are healthy, and do add a touch of pink to the garden, which stands out big time.

    I thought these would be a lot more pink. I bought 2 plants for my daughter who is obsessed with pink, in hopes she would like gardening more. However, she was really disappointed as these only have a slight touch of pink.
