Japanese Forest Grass
Next crop ready late June.You can't go wrong with this classic Japanese Forest Grass. Golden variegated narrow leaves slowly form 18" tall stands that arch forward in waves. Takes dry conditions once established, and is slow to increase at first, but does make an exquisite specimen or stand in a few years.
