Look no further than Giant Hairgrass Eleocharis montevidensis! 

Giant Hairgrass is an aquatic plant ideal for creating a lush, underwater atmosphere. This potted variety is easy to work with and propagates quickly, making it a great addition to any water feature. It also grows fast and tall and is able to cover any pesky hardware such as filters and heaters in the background of your aquascape! 

Originating in the marshes of Southern North America, Giant Hairgrass grows up to 3 feet tall making this the perfect plant for tall, larger planted aquariums. It prefers medium to high water flow but it doesn't require any special needs, however it will benefit from them. It's a very hardy plant and it's easy care make it a great background plant for beginners and expert aquascapers alike!
