Design IdeasThis is a super windbreak plant when lined in a tight row. Slightly separated and its staccato repeats create an architectural divide. This column of green foliage is available in spirals that are perfect in formal gardens or, best of all, as potted specimens. You can let them grow naturally too and gradually shape as you see fit. Perfect for Persian-inspired courtyard gardens when used as a matched set of four at the corners of a large tiered fountain or central plaza. A good choice for bringing two-story building walls down to a more human scale.
