Why not try Tridens?

In full flower now at JLBG is the longspike tridens, aka: Tridens stricta ‘Buffalo Feathers’. Athough native from NC west to Texas, the genetics of our clump hails from a Wade Roitsch (Yucca Do) collection in Lee County, Texas, and is superior ornamentally in both form and longevity.

We have found this little-known ornamental grass to be an excellent garden addition, giving a Calamagrostis acutiflora-like presence in hot, humid summer climates where that popular grass fears to tread. Our plants have been in the ground for over three years, and we continue to be impressed.
