So here's the skinny on our Grassy Mix Seed Bundle: Bunny Tail Grass, of course, has its fluff-topped stems, but the blades of grass themselves are the softest thing you've ever touched. Feather Top Grass has large creamy quills that grow up to 6" long in the late summer atop robust clumps of grass - a great keystone to a coastal or modern display. Limelight Millet, like Amaranth, grows on a sturdy upright stalk (like corn or a sunflower) that produces long, bowing, laser-bright-green flower heads of ancient grain. Any way you sow them, these beautiful plumes are a big statement in gardens and bouquets.
Three seed tubes, individually packed in a little cotton bag, perfect for gifting, or keeping your potting bench organized (and stylish). Specific planting instructions are on each individual seed tube, but basic instructions are below.

How to Plant
Sow a cluster of 6 seeds, spaced about 1/2" apart from each other, 1/4" deep into the soil to make a clump of grass. Water gently and regularly over the next 2 weeks.
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets tons of sun, and space seed clusters at least 18" apart.
When to Plant
Spring, after last frost, or start inside 6 weeks earlier.
When to Expect Blooms
Fuzzy plumes all summer long.
Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during hot and dry spells.
Plumes can be dried and used in preserved bouquets.
