Chionochloa flavicans full sun  partial shade

Gallivanting around New Zealand’s North Island on cliffs and rocky outcrops, this graceful Cortaderia relative sports lustrous dark green tussocks. Creamy silvered plumes elegantly drape on lax stems, which emanate from the cascading, loosely arranged evergreen foundation. A versatile long-lived grass whose steadfast disposition handles drought and an array of soils, Chionochloa flavicans can stand alone or be grouped as a fluid-looking ground cover, especially when planted on a hillside.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide. Zone 7/8.

Chionochloa flavicans (G-0496)
