Product Details

Product Details

Don’t wait for autumn to incorporate Millet into your containers and gardens. Compact, high-performance Pennisetum glaucum ‘Jade Princess’ deserves a starring role all season long. Distinct from other Millets that tend to be taller and have purple-green leaves, ‘Jade Princess’ produces a spray of pale jade foliage that beribbons pollen-less, chocolate-brown flower spikes. Deadhead the flower spikes before they go to seed to promote continuous bloom. The plants add 2’ vertical highlights to containers and gardens, and the dark cocoa-colored spikes serve as striking, long-lasting cut flowers. We loved this plant in our trials and found it a terrific container mixer with Rudbeckias, compact Ornamental Grasses, and dark-leaved Ipomoea.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

Thank you for offering!

I have been looking for Jade Princess for about three years now, unsuccessfully. I was not able to start it from seed. Thank you for offering this wonderful plant!

Most varieties of ornamental grasses grow well in full sun and average garden soil. Keep their foliage for winter effect, cutting back all except the evergreen varieties (Festuca) before new growth emerges in the spring. Refresh Festucas by "raking" out the dried and dead leaves with gloved fingers.

Some species thrive in part shade, or even full shade, expanding the possibilities for Grasses in the garden. Hakonechloa is suitable in part shade, Sesleria in full sun to part shade, and Carex (Sedge) can thrive in full sun to full shade locations, depending on the variety. All need soil that stays evenly moist, although Sesleria can tolerate drier soils, and even drought.

Transplant and divide in spring. Grasses that spread by rhizomes ("run" ) can be invasive and should be divided every year or so. Grasses that grow in clumps die out in the center and need dividing every few years. 

Fertilize ornamental grasses in spring with a balanced fertilizer.  We don't recommend, however, fertilizing them their first spring to allow the roots enough time to settle in before having to support their very lush top growth. 

Ornamental Grasses appear to be quite deer-resistant. Evidently the sharp-edged leaves are unpalatable.

Grasses are at home in mixed borders of perennials, bulbs, and shrubs. Consider summer and fall-blooming perennials as companions: Achillea, Rudbeckia, Helenium, Asters, Monarda, Perovskia, Phlox, and Oriental Lilies. The large Miscanthus varieties work well in the back of a border, or even as single specimens. Because most grasses are sited in the middle or back of a border and are cut back in early spring, we like to plant spring-flowering bulbs around them for color early in the year. Daffodils, Tulips, and Alliums bloom while the Grasses provide little to look at. Then the Grasses and foreground perennials sprout and camouflage the bulbs' maturing foliage.
