Perfect for back of the border or for contrast against patches of green groundcover and sheared lawn. Ideal for wild gardens and dry streambeds, where it blends nicely with the soft hues of warm-colored stone. Enjoy these great tufts as they ripple and sway with the breezes of autumn.|

|Care||Easily grown in average, well-drained soils with consistent moisture. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency when established. Hard prune and apply fertilizer in late winter to early spring just before new shoots appear.|
