Not often seen in gardens, this is a low-growing grass that prefers moist, shady sites. Plants form a dense mound of beautiful chartreuse-yellow foliage in spring, bearing short spikes of green flowers in early summer. A superb companion to spring flowering bulbs of all kinds, also intermingling well with Hostas or ferns. In warm regions this often will go dormant during the summer, so site carefully. Seedlings that appear are usually true. Clumps may also be divided in early spring.
