Description

This fine grasslike plant does well in sun or shade, in a variety of soils – best in light shade and well-drained soil. Plant it under a small tree, and it will not be shaded out as the tree grows! It spreads gently by rhizomes and by seed to form a meadowy carpet that tolerates light foot traffic. Though it will reach only 6″-12″ in height, it can be mowed once or twice a year if you wish a more manicured appearance.
