Fakahatchee

Native to the Southeastern U.S., fakahatchee grass (also called gama grass) is easy to grow and virtually pest-free. This ornamental grass has spiky foliage rising upright from five foot tall clumps, with small wine-colored flowers appearing in late spring to mid-summer. It prefers sunny to partially shady areas with moist to wet soil.
