How cool is this? This small grass has slender, bobbing blades with neat little ball-like seedheads at the end, inspiring its unlikely name: fiber-optic grass.
It's an eye-catching way of adding texture to small containers and the front of a border. It thrives in sun or shade, though it does love moist soil -- so much so you can grow it as a water-garden plant as long as you keep the crown above the water level. It grows well as an indoor plant, so you can also bring it in for year-round color.
