Live Wire - Isolepis Grass Plant

Price: $7.30
Each 2.5-Inch Pot contains 1 plant
The 'Live Wire' Isolepis Grass Plant is definitely not your run-of-the-mill kind of ornamental grass plant. It has long, willowy, slender green stems that bear very minute, blossoms at the tips that amazingly look like tiny fiber optic lights. Live Wire forms a very dense, billowing mound, the new leaves emerging upright from the center of the clump and then spilling down the mound as they elongate.
Plant Features


Isolepis ornamental grasses produce dense, moplike tufts of fine green stems that thrive in moist well drained soils. Commonly called fiber optics plant, they add interest when grown in containers, between rocks, and other places that can highlight the spilling form. 


All of our 'Live Wire' Isolepis (Fiber optics) plants are grown and shipped in fine quality growing medium and are guaranteed to arrive alive and ready to thrive.

Comment: What a unique and interesting live wire plant. In a color bowl by the front door it makes an interesting focal point.

Comment: Live Wire Isolepis looked beautiful when it arrived and was planted but a critter tasted it and pulled it out of the ground over night so don't know if roots got too dry ... Guess we will see, but obviously not your fault

"Hair cut!"

Comment: What a fun plant this turned out to be. My Live Wire Isolepis plant arrived a weary traveler (it IS hot in a box) and I gave him a quick hair cut and plopped him in the ground with some fertilizer. Next day BOOM all in his glory and a perfect mound of grass with a surprise waiting at the end. I'm getting more!

Comment: I plan on ordering from this garden site again. Highly recommend to those searching from a reliable source. The order was easy. The customer service was fantastic; the person I inquired with was friendly, knowledgeable and for no reason gave me a 5% off coupon. Can't beat that! My Isolepis plants were delivered alive and well. They are thriving in their new home! I have a few more on my list I plan on purchasing.
