Design IdeasEven though this is labeled a dwarf, this is still a big grass that needs space to look its best. Adds unique texture and color contrast to mid-sized perennial and shrub borders. Excellent for around water gardens or along dry streambeds. Even works well in semi-shaded environments, where it grows long and luxurious. Grow in drought-resistant gardens for golden fall effects. Perfect for wild gardens as a woodland bright spot or as a taller accent in meadows.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Cut foliage back and apply a general purpose fertilizer just before new shoots appear in late winter to early spring.
