    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.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
