Tiger Grass is a member of the grass family and is native to East Asia.  This plant attracts bees, butterflies and hummingbirds, making it a good addition to any garden.  The tiger grass loves full sun.  It will however grow with several hours of filtered light or spotty direct sun.  Tiger grass is taller than most children, over 6 feet tall, and clumps tight for the tigers to hide in.


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!
