Blue fescue grass

I ordered 5 types of plants. All looked good and healthy except the blue fescue grass. I went ahead and put it in the ground anyways hoping they will recover. So far not looking promising.

Anytime you have an issue with an order please let us know right away at support@theplantingtree.com. This way at the very least we can get a note added to your account in case you have any issues moving forward. I will go ahead and add a 1 year warranty for the fescue grasses to your order at no cost to you. So in case they don't recover you will be covered.
