Hi, I'm Little Zebra! I get my name from my signature horizontally banded green and yellow foliage. Not only do I add a unique pattern and dash of color to your green space, I also have bold plumes of red flowers that rise high above my foliage in the late summer - and the show doesn't stop here, once my flowers finish blooming, my silver seed heads are displayed on showy plumes from early fall to late winter. I am low maintenance, thrive in all soil types, and only require a bit of spring clean up before I resume my growing season in the summer. I am highly tolerant of urban pollution - I love to be planted right in the city! My few requests are that I get lots of sun, and my soil is never left to dry out.

  • Striking appearance: Dwarf Zebra Grass features green blades with bold yellow stripes, which adds a striking touch to any garden or landscape.
  • Easy to care for: This grass is relatively low-maintenance and doesn't require any special care or attention. It can grow in a variety of soil types and is relatively drought-tolerant.
  • Compact size: As its name suggests, Dwarf Zebra Grass is a smaller version of the larger Zebra Grass plant, which makes it a great choice for smaller gardens or container planting.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Regular watering is needed during the first growing season to establish the plant. Once established, Little Zebra can tolerate some drought, but it prefers evenly moist soil. Water deeply once a week during dry periods, especially in the heat of summer.
  • Maintenance: This plant is low-maintenance and requires minimal care. Remove any dead or damaged leaves or stems as they appear.
  • Pruning: In late winter or early spring, cut back the plant to about 6 inches above the ground.
  • (Optional): Fertilizing is not necessary, but a slow-release, balanced fertilizer can be applied in spring to boost growth.

Planting Instructions

Planting a trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer. Backfill with fresh soil if needed and water thoroughly. Water regularly until roots are established to keep the plant healthy. Enjoy your new tree or plant!
