Quietly elegant in form, this Japanese forest grass creates fountain-like clumps of tactile, narrow green foliage with small lime green flowers in late summer.

A fantastic plant for providing movement, sound and structure in the garden over several seasons, including winter when its faded foliage stays upright and rustles in the breeze.  Use it as a statement plant on its own in a planter, or combine it with hostas and ferns for an interesting textural display.  Cut faded foliage down to the ground in late winter.  It prefers a cool, slightly damp soil in dappled shade, but can tolerate more sun.
