Stepping into the spotlight is the Curculigo capitulata, popularly known as Palm Grass. This evergreen perennial boasts deep green, glossy leaves that fan out, reminiscent of palm fronds, lending a tropical touch to gardens and landscapes.

How to Grow

Palm Grass thrives in partial shade to full sun, preferring well-draining, loamy soil. It's best suited for USDA zones 10-11. While it has a robust nature, it benefits from consistent moisture, especially during its establishment phase.

Care Tips

Water regularly, allowing the soil to dry slightly between intervals. To replicate its native humid environment, occasional misting or a layer of mulch can help retain soil moisture, especially in hotter regions.


With its palm-like appearance, Palm Grass is a versatile addition to various garden themes, from tropical paradises to modern minimalist designs. It serves as an excellent ground cover or as an accent plant in mixed borders.

Planting Tips

When planting, choose a location with good soil drainage to prevent waterlogged conditions. Enrich the soil with organic compost to provide the plant with a nutrient-rich start. Space them adequately to allow for their mature spread.


Periodically remove old or yellowing leaves to keep the plant looking fresh and vibrant. During its growing season, a balanced fertilizer can be applied to support its lush growth.

Pests and Diseases

Palm Grass is generally hardy but keep an eye out for common pests like aphids or spider mites. Should they appear, a mild insecticidal soap can help tackle them. Ensure proper watering practices to prevent root rot and other fungal issues.
