Scott Lodder takes a look at four different plants/foliage from Military Miniatures Warehouse, that can be used in a variety of settings.

Thanks Scott,

You already mentionned two outsized items.
Also, the wildgrass is pretty high. But if you trimm it down, the remaining grass doesn't have a nice point anymore and looks, well, cut.

These are some good products for big city modellers, to all the others i can only recommand trips to nature at different seasons. It's good for the health also.

What I see these being used for are grass cover and even wheat fields like at Kursk.
The balls will unwind and be short grass to accent static grass layout or used as patchwork grass along road sides or the middle of the road.
The Wheat stalks would be used for just that a large field of wheat. Or you could use it along riversides as tall grass or next to a field.
The tall grass would need to be cut down and used as accent grass along with other grasses like.
The leafy plantings would be accent plants.

None of these products are Out Of the Box products. All will require trimming, cutting and deconstruction, pretty normal for diorama ground products.

I just got the Balls of seaweed myself looks to be a Very Decent product indeed.
Strange as all the seaweed I ever saw was big and green and slimy.
