Delicate clump-forming species, hailing from sunny, dry areas, but also woodlands, in temperate regions across the world. Showy creamy-white flowers, which can be on dainty stems, generally produced in spring. Californian species could be very useful in the dry garden. We grow a couple of different species, some in shady areas, others in full sun, wherever they are, they add a graceful air. 

As with all tussock- and patch-forming grasses, established plants provide a sheltered microhabitat for beneficial insects such as ladybirds, although being deciduous this doesn't persist into the winter months.
