Porcupine Grass is a very striking and elegant tall ornamental grass with bold rings of golden yellow every few inches up the leaves. This unique horizontal banding creates a beautiful and exotic look like no other grass can bring to your garden. The leaves can reach 6 feet tall, and they are topped with many red flowering stems up to 8 feet tall. Plant it as a dramatic lawn specimen, or among gravel and boulders. Grow it in beds, alone or in groups, for stunning backgrounds. Plant it along streams or by a pond, or near your swimming pool. It looks beautiful in planters and pots, and it has a look that is exotic, elegant and modern all at the same time.

  • Tall, upright ornamental grass with striking leaf patterns
  • Leaves have unique horizontal rings of gold all along them
  • Elegant flower spikes rise to 6 or 8 feet tall
  • Stands through winter for interest and grace
  • Tough, reliable and hardy even in zone 4

Plant Porcupine Grass in full sun, in any well-drained soil. Richer, moist soils will give the tallest growth, but this grass is also drought resistant and grows well by the sea. Deer and rabbits don’t eat it, and it is generally free of pests or diseases. The only care needed is to cut it back to 6 inches tall in spring. It may take some time to re-sprout, waiting for warmer weather, so don’t assume it is dead.
