I saw this unusual looking grass at a nursery, and just had to add it to my garden! I bought just one plant and divided it in to two. It has thrived in my west-facing perennial bed in Canton, Ohio. I love the addition of its unusual texture and to watch it move in the breeze!
Update: Perhaps I should have brought this plant indoors, because it's looking like it won't come back in Spring 2013! It was for sale at a local and informative "Mom and Pop" nursery, so I thought that it was hardy for my zone....Beautiful plant, though!
