Cute grass that is the perfect size for containers and small areas in the landscape. It is taller than 'Little Bunny', but shorter than 'Hameln'. This variety has tan puffy plumes that rise above the finely textured foliage. It is deer resistant and has great year round interest. This is an adorable grass that is great for patio containers and as a tall edging plant.
