Lush well-behaved 3m privacy screen will not sucker or run like bamboo. Essential for Asian-style gardens, elegant in casual outdoor spaces. Happy in large pots. Needs a frost free climate. Will not attract tigers to your garden - try catnip instead ;)

"I bought this Tiger grass from you in early 2020 and look at it now! In just over two years it has grown into a stunning screen and provided a tropical feel to my garden. I thought I’d share my joy with you."
