Container Garden Design Tips for King Tut Grass:
If you keep your King Tut grass well watered, it should grow to be large and spectacular. King Tut is a dramatic plant and looks really great in big, simple containers. It has the stature to be alone in a pot or could add height and interest to a grouping of container gardens.
For an entry with an impact, place a pair of identical pots of King Tut grasses, flanking a door. Because of its impressive height and width King Tut grass can be used to screen unsightly home features.
King Tut grass can also be used in combination with other plants as a centerpiece or "thriller." Try combining it with a bright ground cover, like creeping Jenny, and/or a dark sweet potato vine that will drape over the edges of a pot. You could also add a brightly colored coleus to this combination.
King Tut grass has a distinctly wacky quality to it, so have fun when using it in a container garden. Try putting it in an unusual or brightly colored pot to maximize the potential humor this plant can provide.
