    I just purchased this grass. I was drawn to it because it is supposed to top out at around 12 inches. However, I am confused because I have seen some pictures of supposed 'Northern Lights' that are three feet tall! I plan to situate it near the front of my bed. I hope it stays short. I will have to report back later after I have had it for a season
