    Design IdeasPerfect for mass planting, this durable and showy perennial is at its best at the front of an informal border. Compact form makes an excellent groundcover for tight, narrow spaces. Fine, almost grass-like texture makes an attractive, deep green filler for large areas, planted on a berm or sunny slope.
  • Care
    Care Information
    Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Established plants tolerate drought. Best with regular feeding of high phosphorus fertilizer. In frost-free areas, shear old foliage in spring; re-sprouts from the ground in colder winter areas. May survive with winter protection in USDA zone 7.
