Tim - you're right. These have to be some of the most elegant plants on the planet. What really surprised me about the clump I have is how tough they really are. They can take a good bit of morning and afternoon sun and come through dry periods relatively well. If they get real, real dry, they do kind of get crispy, but it doesn't kill them. The foliage just looks rotten the rest of the year. The next year they come back just fine.
