Isolepis cernua Fiber Optic Grass
Isolepis cernua -Fiber Optic Grass
This is a cool looking grass I will finally carry this year 2010, however it has been around for a few years . It is a annual in our area zone 4/5 .
A full-sized Fiber Optic Grass is the highlight of any garden.
It has an abundance of bright green, long, narrow stems. Each stem ends with a soft tan yellow tip, making it look as though the plant is surrounded by thousands of tiny sparks.
Grows in a symmetrical, pendulous tuft.
Always looks great in a container or plant it in a protected area in a spot that allows the stems to spill over.
Evergreen in zones 8-10; it should be treated as an annual elsewhere.
Fiber Optic Grass is a Warm season grass with bright green foliage
Grows to 1 foot, 1 foot with flower, likes sun-part shade area and moist-average soil conditions
Hardy in Zones 8-10
Origin: British Isles, Europe, North Africa
I am excited to see this grass perform this season.
