I have some already and they are lovely. I also wanted a grass that doesn't reseed itself.

japanese grass
this was to be a planting on a small sloping area in the side yard,,,, not long after having the gardener plant the grass, they all turned a pale yellow and died...
the gardener did as instructed but for whatever reason the grass did not survive..
will try to find another solution for the slope...

Slow growing but very pretty. I hope that they survive the New England winter.
