Design Ideas This is a gorgeous wide grass that produces very unique curled seed heads. Grow it where you'll enjoy the effects of graceful foliage when green or golden at summer's end. 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.
Flower Color White
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Ninebark (Physocarpus); Juniper (Juniperus); Potentilla (Potentilla); Aster (Aster); Cranesbill (Geranium); Catmint (Nepeta)
CARE
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.
