Years Trialed: 2001, 2002

Good Qualities

Year 1

Attractive fine leaved grass. I’m more excited about using the foliage than the flower; Good growth.

Year 2

Vigorous grower, different flower head.


Year 1

This grass just sat in the field and did not grow (Zone 7).

Year 2

Nondescript; Just another grass – boring; Wrong climate? – Never flowered, foliage only got about 12 inches long (Zone 7a).


Year 1

Plants from this supplier were quite small.

Year 2

Similar to pennisetums and miscanthus; Not any interest found by anyone; Too similar to other grasses to stand out.
