Plant Highlights

This delicate perennial cool-season grass grows to about 2' and is a medium green color. This grass looks spectacular when under trees in a garden, as part of a meadow, or in a sparse woodland setting. It needs limited water in the summer to keep it green. Inland it should receive some partial shade, on the coast it will enjoy a sunny situation.
