Fiber optic grass gets its common name from wiry grassy leaves, which resemble fiber optic wire. It can even grow in standing water, adding fine texture to a shallow water garden. Or create a mini palm tree effect by wrapping a plastic tube around the base of the plant for the "trunk," allowing leaf tips to arch out of the tube as palm "fronds."
