Rating for this plant:
I first saw this grass growing in a huge pot in full shade. I was so awestruck with this light, almost golden colored grass that lit up a very dark back yard over-hung with mature trees that I asked what it was so I could try it for myself. It does well in pots and needs to be kept consistently moist. Upon further research it is recommended for around water features.

I like this opinion
