This glorious warm season perennial grass forms a thick clump of upright, cascading apple-green leaves that are heavily banded with gold and appear to glitter and dance in the breeze; taller and more banded than 'Gold Bar'; showy silvery-burgundy flowers mature to beige; nice cut flower; deer resistant; great winter interest; fairly drought tolerant once established.
