Ornamental palm-like herbaceous plant from SE Asia to Australia. Palm-grass grows in bright shade and creeps as a tall ground cover, with very showy ribbed leaves, resembling the juvenile foliage of so many palms, like Syagrus romanzoffiana. But this is not a palm at all and it stays small forever and blooms at ground level with nice bright-yellow flowers (often unnoticed when the foliage is very dense).This species becomes a true beauty when grown in the right conditions. Molineria capitulata was formerly called Curculigo capitulata and it is an old classic of tropical gardening. It brings a wild accent to any garden, giving a lush understorey . Molineria takes some cold and grows well outdoors in the warmer coasts of the Mediterranean, where it does better in a somehow sheltered patio. It does well in pots as long as it is regularly fed to avoid yellowing or brown tips.
