A misleading name for a plant is not a grass and does not look much like a grass either. This is a very unique and uncommon plant that is sure to add interest to your garden from Spring to Fall. A tuft of vibrant green egg-shaped basal leaves emerge in the Spring. Long and slender stems grow up to one foot tall and produce a geometric and attractive white flower with green veins in the fall. Attracts bees and butterflies.
Prefers sandy soil rich in organics in part shade to full sun. Would pair well with Marsh Marigold or one of our sedges (Find in Grasses). Give ample space between plants as this plant does not like to compete.
