Ornamental Grasses are starting to become popular with gardeners around the world, and have always been a part of the natural landscapes of the earth. Because of their versatility, they are being used more and more frequently in the home garden. Most grasses will grow in areas where other plants will not survive. Grasses planted should be well watered the first season after planting so they can develop a good root system. Established plants do not need regular watering, but may need supplemental watering during drought periods.

Love it!
I love this plant.  It will double in size in no time, so be prepared to give it room to expand.  My zone had a pretty harsh winter season, but these lilies are still as green as ever.  I planted a few right before the freeze unknowingly, but they made it through and are all healthy.  These plants are great as borders and you don't need to crowd them because they get fuller with each passing year.
