Cherry Sparkler Fountain Grass Plant

Plant healthy and packaged well.

From Diane | April 22, 2016

unique and carefree

My wife saw these at a restaurant once, and I finally found them here and nowhere else. A wonderful Pink/Red/Green leaves...but the tassles on the stalks are a fuzzy, Pink. Wonderful to watch blowing in the wind. A must have! Doesn't get real big, and I have done morning but water them once in awhile
