Fab Foliage Friday



What's not to like about fiber optic grass (Scirpus cernus, aka Isolepsis cernus)? This twee little rush adds interest to almost any planting by virtue of its silly, Dr. Seussical appearance and its appealing texture. You just just want to touch this thing. Easy-peasy to grow (as long as it gets plenty of water), fiber optic grass make a tidy dome to about 12 inches high and wide. It's an annual, unless you're in Zone 9. Good in the ground or in containers. It also makes a great fright wig if you've got the right pot.
