Golden Wood Millet is a beautiful yellow grass that works perfectly in a shady area. While a short grass, growing to 1.6 ft ( 0.5 m) tall, it is the tallest yellow grass available. Much more shade tolerant than other clumping grasses, it is a perfect choice for a ground cover or border in a shade garden.
