SKU
44685
This showy grass glows in the landscape, with golden spring leaves that age to bright lemon, followed by lime green. Light, airy plumes dance softly above the foliage in later summer, persisting through winter. Fall brings colors of gold and orange. Creates a terrific contrast when used among shrubs or as a backdrop in a perennial bed. Herbaceous perennial.
