Pennisetum Cassian Addition
MDP from NJ wrote on March 27, 2020

My current order for this project is now complete and fulfilled with the receipt of this ornamental grass. Pennisetum Cassian was received very well packaged along with planting and care information. Already planted or positioned along one of my mother’s pedestrian borders and rock garden area , the bristle tips and shaggy blades of grass will sway gracefully with the summer wind. Here we expect that the ornamental grass will display a gleaming characteristic with its colorful feathery plumes in the mid summer heat. This was my first time ordering with JP and I will hope to again reorder more products for next years round of home improvement efforts. Thank you and ttys….. *****
