The versatility of the grasses allow them to be placed in nearly any situation, from being in a container, basket, or raised bed, to being in the border or rockery.

Prefers full sun, or partial shade with free-draining but moist soil or compost.

A hardy plant which should survive normal winter conditions outside, especially if protected from the hardest frosts.
