Bright green foliage is narrow and elegantly arches to the ground. In the fall the foliage will turn to a sandy/tan color.
Very grasslike, with a mound of silky, fine leaves that are a lovely contrast to broad-leaved shade plants such as hostas, Siberian bugloss and wild ginger. It needs part to full shade, and can often tolerate even the dry shade under trees. This shade-loving lawn alternative is much in demand for installations large, small and in-between that call for native American species.
It's a quick but manageable spreader with rich green undulating blades

The plants were healthy. the packaging kept them looking good even though I couldn't open for four days. Sizing was consistent. About 2/3 had sufficient root systems to plant intact, so some could have matured a bit more in the container, but they all seem to be doing very well. Well priced and great service.
