We are always looking for ways to lighten up shady borders. This clumping grass can indeed do just that. Its soft blades are at their brightest in the spring when they are new. As the season advances, they turn golden green. We use Milium effusum 'Aureum' to contrast with darker foliaged shade plants like Sarcococca and ferns. Be sure to maintain regular water during the summer to keep this grass looking its best.
