Wind Dancer Lovegrass

Eragrostis elliottii 'Wind Dancer'

Attractive fine-textured grass with blue green foliage. Tall plumes of fluffy white flowers to dance in the wind as they age to tan by late summer, holding into autumn. Plant in mass in meadows to naturalize. A great specimen accent for landscape or container.
