One of the few grasses that thrives in part shade! Only 18-24" tall, its slender leaves form a fountain of bright green and then become suffused with crimson and purple in fall. Beautiful cascading down a shady bank or over a retaining wall. Likes evenly moist soil, but tolerates dry spells. Zones 5-9. 3" pot. Hakonechloa macra 'Beni-kaze'. -
Hedge? The grass used for these amazing feathery hedges is Pennisetum alopecuroides Hamelm. Maintenance is easy, the plants are just cut down in spring with shears and then they will grow to acheive their full potention by the end of summer. Wow.
Ohhhh i LOVE THIS! Cotton Candy Pampus Grass - withstands heat, humidity, poor soil and even drought. Very easy to grow, it reaches a mature height of 3-4 feet tall and gets 3-4 feet wide. Grows in all U.S zones.
