    • I April of 2018 I ordered 4 Little Bunny ornamental grasses, paying in excess of $90 for the 4. When they arrived each of them was smaller than my fist. My landscape guy planted them in correct prepared soil with good irrigation. Not a one of them grew at all! I phoned Proven Winners, and they referred my concern/complaint to their in-house growers. Never received a call back, so I finally called THEM back. They said just give it more time, which I did. Nothing. All of the plants i was sent were duds. Finally after more phone calls and emails, I finally was given a full refund. Fast forward to now, I ordered 4 new plants from Garden Goods Direct on Etsy for exactly one half the price. The plants came and they were huge and gorgeous, with supple green grass blades and many white fluffy plumes. Buyer be aware.
