Only a few ornamental grasses are shade tolerant. They include Northern Sea Oats, Feather Reed Grass, Hakone, Ribbon grass and Japanese Sedge. Feather Reed Grass (Calamagrostis acutiflora ?Karl Foerster?) grows 4? plus; Northern Sea Oats (Chasmanthium latifolium) tops out at about 4?; the rest are about 18" tall at maturity.
