Description

These ornamental grasses are evergreen and quick growing during the summer months but are not at all hardy in the UK. Grow in a sunny well drained position or ideally in a container for the summer but bring inside with good light and minimum temperature of 10’c before the first frosts. Will divide easily when actively growing.
