Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Grows best in a moist to average soil, in full sun to partial shade. Leaving foliage adds winter interest, but prune in late winter to make way for new growth. 

Additional Notes about Gold Dew Tufted Hair Grass:


Cool Season Grasses: These grasses do the majority of their growing in early spring and continue 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 flower in the spring or early summer. Most cool season grasses grow best in a consistently moist soil.
