You know, Andrea, I've had it for so many years, I cannot remember
what it did at first or even where I got it.  It's a true grass and I
haven't grown any from seed - on purpose - but I have grown several
Carex from seed and they all seem to take a couple of years to start
looking like anything.  The self-sown Miscanthus and Pennisetum are
the same...first two years you think 'weed' and then they grow up and
are lovely.  So, maybe this is a grassy plant trait?
