Uncommon cool-season evergreen perennial. Loves shade or full sun. It provides a good groundcover unmowed or mowed in yards, wildscapes or range areas. Left unmowed it has an attractive dense seed head. Deer resistant but beneficial to butterflies and other forms of wildlife. It tolerates a broad range of soil conditions. Produces runners and spreads rapidly. Little weed maintenance w/ moisture. If planted on 6" centers it will fill in within 90 days to a solid mat. Grows profusely in spring or fall.
It is evergreen in mild summers and can get up to 3' tall. If drought will go dormant in summer. In late Spring it sends up a stalk with seed heads on it. Our collection came from a prairie remnant NW of Austin on FM 620 in 2002. It does not produce viable seed on farm because it may be all male or female plants on farm.
Please be ready to plant & water your roots A.S.A.P. after receipt of order. Approx 15 roots in 1 bundle. For fuller coverage sooner in sun or shade native lawn plantings, try 1 bundle per 5-6 square feet.
