This grass is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its foliage in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose it all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow growing
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A brilliant plant for a shady spot, this semi-evergreen grass gets going in early spring, and forms a rich, yellow mound which matures to a bright green. Delicate golden flowers form a haze in summer. Plant at the edge of a shady border, or in groups as part of a woodland planting scheme.

  • Garden care: Divide in spring if clumps start to look tatty.
