Because it's such a tough plant I decided to plant it in my hellstrip. Growing about 2' wide and 3' tall, I think it will make a lovely meadow in the end. What I love about P. "Fairy Tails" is the charming wands of flowers it has, which like so many grasses are alive with even the slightest breeze. The flower spikes are erect so it is set apart from the common fountain grass. A good dark green foliage will fool you into thinking it takes more water than it actually does. And then the last great thing is that it's clumping and I believe sterile so it's well behaved while pretending to be a bit wild.
I cannot wait until the parkway is a bending with thousands of creamy wands. As the weather cools I have already come to accept that I will probably have to wait until spring for such a display. But it is gardening after all that has taught me patience.
