    Design IdeasThis large ornamental grass is colorful and ever changing. An exceptional variegated leaf topped by vivid flower heads that are rich with orange-pink highlights. Great big accent for beds and borders and large rock gardens. Use as a vertical among low-growing plants or have a pair flank a favorite sculpture or classical stone column. Perfect near water gardens as wildlife cover and in conjunction with tiered or wall fountains to disguise mechanical pumps, filters, pipes and wires. A real stunner singly or in pairs planted in distressed metal pots or antique urns on pedestals.
