Sweet vernal grass is a seasonal perennial grass which grows well in sun and light shade. It is also known as vanilla grass because when it is cut it has a little bit of a vanilla scent. These plants flower earlier than others, usually during early to the middle of spring. Sweet vernal grass spreads aggressively so it is best to grown it in containers. If you want to put them in a garden do not allow them to flower and seed.
