Quick Overview:

With beautiful steel-blue foliage, this is a spreading grass that needs to be used carefully. Best to contain this in a planter, or use as a groundcover in a large sunny area. Foliage is terrific for flower arranging! Arching tan spikes appear in summer but these are often removed. Mow the old foliage to the ground in late fall or early spring. Clumps are easily divided, and even small root pieces will grow. Sometimes used to stabilize sand dunes.
