Sand cordgrass is a large bunch-forming grass (usually without runners) that gets 4-6 ft (1.2-1.8 m) tall. The leaves are rolled, almost wire-like and a little sandpapery (but not sharp) to the touch. The stems and leaves arise in a dense cluster and curve out and down to take up a space equal to the clump's height. The whole plant is brownish-green: more green in summer and more brown in winter, but never as brown as pampas grass gets in winter.
Culture Light Full sun is best. Moisture Occurs naturally in wetlands and grows best in moist sandy soils. Sand cordgrass is surprisingly drought tolerant, however, and can be used anywhere in the landscape. Hardiness USDA Zones 8 - 10. Hardy at least to USDA Zone 8, and probably hardy to zone 7. Propagation Divide pieces of the root in summer
