Product Description

One of the most gorgeous of ornamental grasses, also one of the few that prefers shady sites. This forms a low mound of arching stems, with cascading layers of narrow leaves striped with green and creamy-white. The graceful effect is similar to a dwarf bamboo. Tiny green flowers are hidden among the leaves. Clumps are slow to grow, but eventually makes a spectacular edging. Combines beautifully with Hostas or ferns, since all have similar requirements. Mature clumps may be divided in early spring, but be sure to make the divisions large for best success. Needs moist soil. Not invasive in the least.

Though this grass does spread by stolons, it is a slow grower and will not rapidly overtake its neighbors. Plant it where it can cascade down slopes, drape over rocks, crawl over the edges of walls, at the front of the garden, or even in containers.

Japanese Forest Grass is grown mainly for its beautiful foliage, though it does produce seed heads. Tiny, inconspicuous reddish brown flower spiklets appear in airy clusters from late summer thru mid-fall. Also makes a great bonsai.
