Purple fountain grass poor condition
Saturday, 12 June 2021  | 

Looked like some one had taken a strimmer to it and not very big. Thought it was poor for 6.99 and the long wait to have it delivered. Other reviews looked positive so hopefully this will meet its expectations very impressed with all the other plant I had ordered.
