Interesting grass-like foliage with a hairy edge. Creates a soft backdrop for other more prominent plants. It grows well for me in moderate shade. The tag said it liked to be quite moist or at the edge of a pond, but it seems to do just fine mixed with other part shade perennials in a regular border.
