Libby,

In quite a bit of shade it will just not grow and at best be spindly and weak. Grasses in general need sun so for shade you may need to consider a grass like plant such as liriope or Aztec Grass (actually related to liriope) with its white and green striped foliage.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
