    The coppery-brown leaves of this evergreen grass look strangely like hair. An extremely versatile plant - can be grown as a specimen and in containers. We've even seen it planted in a chic, urban windowbox with Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigresens'. Brown flower spikes in mid - and late summer.

  • Garden care: Comb through the plant in winter to remove dead foliage
