Design Ideas: This vigorous broad-leafed grass behaves a lot like a dwarf Bamboo without the spreading problem. It's a ray of sunshine in shaded or dark-colored gardens. The golden grass-like leaves will brighten partly-shaded or dark-colored gardens. A great accent beside water gardens or at the base of arbor posts. An excellent Asian-garden plant.

Thrives in cool summer climates with humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soil. Mulch to conserve moisture and keep roots cool in summer, and to protect root zone in cold winter areas. Best foliage color in brighter exposures, but needs protection from harsh sun in hot summer regions. Prune old foliage before new leaves emerge in spring.
