A long lived grass that will provide year round interest in the garden. 1 to 2 foot tall silver tipped flower spikes emerge from 1 to 2 foot wide tufted clumps of lime-green blades in mid-summer and persist well into winter. Entire plant turns a golden brown in the fall. 

This low maintenance, evergreen grass has no obvious insect or disease issues and is drought tolerant once established. Unpalatable to deer and other small herbivores. Winter hardy in zones 5 to 8 this grass would make an excellent low informal hedge, walkway planting, meadow planting, specimen or accent planting. If grown in a pot or container it would be best to plant it in the ground for the winter season and repot it in spring. Alternatively, the pots or containers could be stored indoors for the winter in a cool, but sunny area that is above freezing. Native to eastern and northern Italy to Albania.

This grass does best in full sun to partial shade in average to fertile soil that is moist but well-drained and prefers a slightly alkaline pH. 

No deadheading or pruning is required for this plant. Cut back to a few inches above the ground in late winter to early spring.

Plants should be spaced approximately 8 to 18 inches apart if grown as a mass planting, walkway or pathway planting, meadow planting, or if grown in a pot or container.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
