Pogonatherum paniceum - Baby Bamboo or House Bamboo
A clump forming compact grass (not a bamboo) with a bushy habit to 12-16 inches tall with tiny "bamboo-like" dense leaves. Part of the name Pogonatherum comes from the Greek "po;n" meaning beard which is in reference to the fine beardlike appearance. Interesting and beautiful in containers, as an edging of a rock garden or ponds, or as a groundcover where it should be cut to the ground occasionally to keep the planting shorter and denser. Plant in full to part sun and irrigate well. It is also used worldwide as a houseplant.
