Hey everyone I'm new to both this site and gardening in general. I bought a petunia on clearance at Walmart yesterday, replanted it and cleaned it up nice. I don't want to kill the grass in the center so any help in identifying this particular grass would be greatly appreciated! Smiling

I have no idea what the grass is, but I don't think you could go wrong by watering it whenever you water the petunias.
Unlike the petunias, it might possibly survive the winter. Hope that helps.

I saw one of these on the clearance table at Home Depot this afternoon. It even had red petunias. I wondered about the 'grass' but did not recognize it. I wish I had paid better attention....

Cordyline indivisa (not a grass) is used as "spikes", or "dracaena spikes" as they're called, in containers.
