Shorter and more upright than the species; the fine-textured, vase-shaped foliage turns a gorgeous toasty orange red in autumn. Scented seed heads rise well above the foliage offering a welcome feast for songbirds. Oh fiddle dee dee, you might just want two or three!
Sporobolus Tara produces more seed heads with consistent height and does not freely self-seed. Due to its shorter stature, it is a perfectly suited ornamental grass for rock gardens and foreground plantings.
Sporobolus are easy to grow and low maintenance. Fine-textured foliage forms a dense arching tuft. Seed fronds provide food for songbirds. Tolerant of a wide range of soils, including rocky or clay, but prefers a well-draining site for best performance.
Once established Sporobolus is long lived and needs little care. Drought tolerant, but requires regular watering for the first growing season to establish. Can be divided in Spring if desired. Tease out old, tired foliage in spring.
