What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Cape Rush
Cape rush is also well suited to dry landscapes, and its breezy movement alludes to water in landscapes lacking that feature. Add natural slope stability to a hillside or use it for textural contrast in a minimalist garden.
Genevieve Schmidt added this to 8 Ornamental Grasses for Coastal Gardens
Cape rush: Chondropetalum tectorum is an easy-to-grow plant that tolerates a wide range of soils as long as it is watered regularly. It does well in full sun or with at least five hours of direct sunshine per day, and reaches about 4 feet tall and 6 feet wide. It fits in particularly well in modern coastal gardens because the dark brown (almost black) bracts and flowers make such a strong display with modern elements like rusty metal or black resin planters. It is evergreen and needs no pruning.
