Initially purchased as a perennial planter accent, I ended up dividing it when it started hogging space in the pot. I wish I had done so sooner – it’s been a fantastic plant for propagation. Because so few grasses work well in shade, especially ones with interesting color, I’m pretty thrilled to see this performing so well. This plant performs best with constant moisture (not standing water). It will adapt to average moisture, but prolonged dry spells may cause leaf tips to brown.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
