At least that's what I think it is as the label just says ornamental grass. Does anyone know where would be a good place to plant it? Border, pot or on its own in gravel??? #advice #undecided #whatsbest

@moore.794 do you think it would survive in a pond?

@karolinas it is a plant that grows at the edge of a pond or in a marsh where soil is wet but not submirged. We kept at edge of pond on rocks just so very bottom of pot was in water. Don't know if hardy where you are. Rhs has information on.

Thats good to know Jane @janedy do they spread a lot? Or do they stay rather compact?
