Bloomed 2nd year, but bigger and better 3rd year. Very soft in the landscape. With a lot of movement in the slightest breeze. A wonderful addition to the dry garden with a long season of interest.

I planted these in March, and they woke up mid-April. They are now growing extremely strongly and happily. I love them already, and have high hopes for future seasons with this grass!

Nice airy grass

About Me Master Gardener
This grass has a nice light texture. I have it planted in a pot that is sunk halfway in the ground with its bottom cut off. So far its been hardy enough to survive those conditions and it looks really nice.

Slow But Growing
from Rio Rico, AZ
Bought these to plant under eucalyptus trees. They seem to be a lot slower growing & 'blossoming' than I hoped for, but they have a nice shape & are not invasive.

High Desert Grassland
By Prineville Sage
from Central Oregon/Prineville
Lovely profile, especially combined with Karl Forster. The coloring is delicate, and the effect is especially pleasing in a breeze. We use this among fescue,other calamogrostis plants and kinnickinnick in a rocky native planting.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
