Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information

Grasses, Ornamental

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-14 days at 60-64°F (16-18°C).

SOWING: Transplant (recommended): We recommend transplanting rather than direct seeding because young seedlings can easily be mistaken for grass weeds, making the first cultivation/weeding difficult. Sow 5-6 weeks before last frost in a light, sterile soilless mix in individual containers or seedling trays. Cover seed lightly to aid germination.


SOIL REQUIREMENTS: Well-drained soil.



HARVEST: Fresh: Harvest when flower spikes are fully opened.

USES: Excellent cut flower. Filler in bouquets and mixed containers.
