Warranty & Returns

Standard Warranty:

All of our trees and shrubs come with a 30-day warranty from the date of delivery. This means that if your tree/shrub is damaged in shipment or if it dies within 30 days of your delivery, we will gladly offer a replacement or credit. Should you receive your tree/shrub during dormancy, and it does not emerge from dormancy by June 1st - the same replacement policy applies.

If, within this period, you notice any issues with the health or condition of your plants, please contact us immediately. We will work with you to provide a suitable solution.

1 Year Extended Warranty Option:

For added peace of mind, we offer a 1 year extended warranty option. You can choose to purchase an extended warranty for 12% of your cart total at the time of purchase. This extended warranty covers your trees and shrubs for 1 year from the date of delivery. If your tree/shrub dies within the extended warranty period, we will provide you with a replacement plant or issue store credit for the amount of your original purchase. Shipping fees are not included.

3. Warranty Claim Process:

If you need to make a warranty claim, please follow these steps:

  • Contact our customer support team at as soon as you notice any issues with your plant's health.
  • Provide your order number, a description of the issue, and photos documenting the issue.
  • We may request additional photos or other information to assess the problem.

How are heights measured?

Tree and Shrub heights are measured from the top of the root ball or soil, measuring only the above ground portion of your tree or shrub.

How does shipping work?

We ship either UPS or via our own delivery trucks. After you place your order you'll receive notifications at each step of the way to keep you informed on your item's travels!

Many items are listed in Gallon sizes, what does that mean?

The Gallons refer to the size of the pot that the plant is in. It's simply an industry standard for sizing trees and shrubs. All of our items should have the actual height listed on the description page. If you have any questions regarding sizing, feel free to reach out to us!

Introducing the Prairie Winds Cheyenne Sky Switch Grass – a stunning ornamental grass that effortlessly combines beauty and resilience. Elevate your landscape with the graceful, feathery plumes and striking red hues of this exceptional perennial.

Growing Zones: Thriving in USDA hardiness zones 4-9, the Cheyenne Sky Switch Grass adapts seamlessly to a variety of climates. Whether you're nestled in the cooler northern regions or basking in the southern warmth, this versatile grass adds a touch of elegance to any garden.

The Cheyenne Sky Switch Grass, scientifically known as Panicum virgatum 'Cheyenne Sky,' stands out with its compact, upright habit and stunning wine-red foliage. In late summer, delicate, airy panicles emerge, creating a mesmerizing dance in the breeze. This native grass offers year-round interest, transitioning to a warm tan shade in winter.

Key Features:

  1. Vivid Red Foliage: The unique wine-red coloration of Cheyenne Sky adds a pop of warmth and richness to your garden.

  2. Compact and Upright: Perfect for smaller spaces, this grass reaches a height of 2 to 3 feet, making it an excellent choice for borders, containers, or mixed plantings.

  3. Low Maintenance: Resilient and easy to care for, this switch grass is drought-tolerant once established, requiring minimal water and fertilizer.

  4. Versatile Landscaping: Whether you're creating a prairie-inspired garden or adding accents to your existing landscape, the Cheyenne Sky Switch Grass provides versatility and visual appeal.

Care Tips:

  • Sunlight: Plant in full sun to achieve the most vibrant foliage coloration. This grass thrives in at least six hours of direct sunlight daily.

  • Soil: Well-draining soil is crucial. The Cheyenne Sky Switch Grass is adaptable to a range of soil types but prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil.

  • Watering: Once established, the grass is drought-tolerant. Water deeply during the first growing season to encourage strong root development.

  • Pruning: In late winter or early spring, cut back the grass to a few inches above ground to allow new growth to emerge.

  • Fertilization: While not overly demanding, a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring can enhance the overall health and vigor of the grass.
