    Design IdeasGreat upright grass for prairie and meadow gardens or for small patches within thematic wild gardens. Add a modern architectural twist by planting in rows and grids. Insert into native plant landscapes as well as traditional xeriscape compositions or plant in mass for a drift of almost year round color. Perfect near water gardens or terraced patios where the breeze causes the airy plumes to sway gracefully.
  • Care
    Care Information
    Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Cut old foliage back and apply a general purpose fertilizer just before new shoots appear in late winter to early spring.
