Q.Can I Plant Feather Reed Grass In A Container For My Patio Container Garden? If So, What Size Container?

Zone 23233 | Anonymous added on June 21, 2023 | Answered

I live in a cottage in a retirement community and have a very small patio. I am trying to create a container garden and am interested in putting a grass in a container . The area gets filtered light in the early morning; mid-morning sun and heavy shade in the afternoon. All of my plants are in containers on plant dollies. Am looking for a grass that will work in this setting; also need to know what size container. Thank you!
