This variety is a semi-aquatic, grass-like plant producing a mound of green stems with green bracts; perfect for pond side planting or in wet areas of the garden; will tolerate drier conditions once established. Baby Tut Umbrella Grass’ attractive grassy leaves remain green in color throughout the season. Baby Tut Umbrella Grass is an herbaceous annual with a mounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage. Baby Tut Umbrella Grass is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor pots and containers. It can be used either as ‘filler’ or as a ‘thriller’ in the ‘spiller-thriller-filler’ container combination, depending on the height and form of the other plants used in the container planting. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
