Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Grows best in a moist, well-drained soil, in partial to full shade and tolerates humidity. It is recommended to prune foliage almost to ground level in midsummer to allow for new growth in the fall months.    

Additional Notes about Tuber Oat Grass:


Cool Season Grasses: These grasses do the majority of their growing in early spring and start again when temperatures start to cool in the fall. During the warmer summer months they stop growing and some will even go dormant. Cool season grasses will flower in the spring or early summer. Most cool season grasses grow best in a consistently moist soil.
