Looks best if cut to the ground after summer flowering. Plant in light shade to full sun (along coast); and although this plant will tolerate fairly dry conditions, it looks better when watered regularly. Native to Europe. This garden planting of the bulbous oat grass and Ophiopogon clarkei under a Trinadad flame tree (Calliandra tweedii) and surrounded by Coleonema 'Sunset Gold'.
