Deciduous/ Evergreen: Evergreen
Growth Rate: Moderate
Special Feature: Clump Forming, Easy Care, Ornamental Berries
Foliage Color: Green
Bloom Time: Summer
Flower Color: Purple
Garden Style: Tropical
Design Ideas: Despite its name, this is more of a Lily-like plant than a true grass. It is the traditional groundcover of the Japanese garden, planted at the base of pagoda lights and stone basins. A fine groundcover that stays small, it's perfect for entry gardens, courtyards and atriums. Very good as an edge plant for water gardens or arranged at the base of fountains. Plant in small clusters or as a large, irregular shaped mass in Asian gardens. Great for geometric layouts in postmodern and tropical schemes.

Provide enriched, moist, well-drained soil. Shelter from harsh afternoon sun in hot summer regions. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Clumps may be divided every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
