Miniature Monkey Grass can be used for terrariums, fairy gardens, and mini gardens.  Monkey Grass likes shady spots.  it will grow in some sun but prefers shade.  Lots of places in Manatee County have Monkey Grass growing, especially as a border for a flower bed.  Next time you are riding around, look for Monkey Grass to see if you can spy it.


You can find this and many other plants in the Educational Gardens at the Agriculture & Extension Service, 1303 17th Street West in Palmetto.  Come visit us; we'd love to see you!
