Setaria megaphylla is a tall grass that loves cool moist conditions, in the wild it is often found in clumps in the shade of trees. Its leaves are broad and deep green, and it grows to about 1.5m high. Birds love this plant - from its abundant seeds for food, to its leaves which are used for nest building. It suits a natural style garden, and looks best when planted amongst other grasses.
