Design IdeasThis Southwest native is at home in a desert, xeriscape or rock garden. It will add color and textural interest to cottage beds and borders if placed with other low water use perennials. Plant along dry streambeds, landscape boulders or in large Santa Fe-style clay pots. Its tropical look will provide a welcome injection of the tropics into colder winter gardens. Plant in mass in the farther reaches of your garden along with other grasses for a colorful, native grassland design.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
