Jumpin’ Jack hopped right to it when he found these at the garden center. Picked precisely for perfect performance in pots, the ColorGrass® collection is irresistible at retail.
Their trademark upright/cascading clump-forming habit means they can anchor stand-alone patio pots, or serve as the filler or spiller in mixed containers. That form also makes them a fine candidate to edge a border in full sun or part shade.
Seductively tousled tussocks of soft green leaves with a misty overcast. Sensational when massed in formal or informal plantings. Height: 10”. Hardy in Zones 7 – 9.
Don’t let the name fool you, this pony is nicely tamed. Go ahead, stroke its fine mane of bronzy-brown blades. You know you want to. Height: 10”. Hardy in Zones 7 – 9.
Slender olive-green blades turn a unique orange hue in cooler temperatures. Forms attractive fountain-like mounds. Height: 18 – 24”. Hardy in Zones 6 – 9.
