Product Details

Florida Native-- Fakahatchee Grass, Eastern Gamagrass (Tripsacum dactyloides) - Live Plant

Ships in a 1 gallon pot

This beautiful Florida Native ornamental grass is evergreen in sub-tropical areas and has bright green blades with a serrated edge. A clumping grass that grows between 4 and 6 feet tall and wide. This is a great addition to any wildlife or permaculture garden!

This clumping grass can be cut as an ornamental too. To use it as a fertilizer you can cut it back to about 2 feet, two to three times or more a year and where placed, it breaks down slowly proving mulch, high carbon, and silica, keeping in moisture and creating a nice fungal web, which breaks it down slowly, while protecting this mycelial environment with shade, during the summer, and keeps down evaporation saving the need to water as much, if at all. Simply cut and layer approximately a 4 carbon to 1 nitrogen ratio with a nitrogen fixing plant and dynamic accumulators, such as Mexican Sunflower, Calliandra or Pigeon Pea to what we call chop and drop on your soil near your plants, by placing the nitrogen and dynamic accumulator on the ground first, as to not touch the base of the tree, then place the cut grass over top, it is that simple.

  • Average mature height: 4-6 ft
  • Light: Full sun, tolerates partial shade
  • Soil: Most soils, well-drained
  • Hardiness zones: 8-11

Shipping Stress - Transport can cause stress to plants, especially if spending a few days in a dark stuffy box. Leaf drop may occur.  Most plants survive with no problems or with minimal stress and recover quickly others may require extra love and attention with watering and gentle light after unboxing.

Physical damage - Occasionally, boxes become damaged during UPS handling & transport. Our shipping team takes all measures in securely packing your selection/s to minimize all damage and stress on the plant.  We've had great feedback on packing your plants with extra special attention. Unfortunately, it's past our control beyond our packing house.  
In cases of serious box damage, please contact UPS within 30 days to start a claim.
If it's just a broken branch or even part of a stem - just let it grow, take care of your plant and it will respond to your love.

Shipping Long Distances -  Orders that are shipped to the western US can often take 4 to 6 business days for transport, including the delay of agricultural inspections in Arizona, California & Texas. Please note that the quality of tender young plants is more affected by the extra length of stress inside shipping boxes. Extra care is taken during packaging to ensure quick recovery after unboxing.  Often plants need extra care for the first few weeks after transport.  Please review our policy on returns & refunds for more information, as well as our plant care guide.
