Try this evergreen grass as a ground cover in dry shade. The texture of this grass is particularly special–the leaves are very fine textured and the flowers are extra-billowy. Clouds of silvery, sometimes purple looking flowers top the plant in late spring. Plant in groups or mass to really show off the blooms. This grass will not tolerate much sun in our hot summers–a few hours of morning sun is acceptable, but try to keep it out of the afternoon sun.
