This elegant warm season perennial grass forms a beautiful clump of long, arching, green leaves with white borders; foliage seems to shimmer silver; reddish-copper plumes mature to silvery white; nice fall colour, winter interest; nice cut flower; deer resistant; fairly drought tolerant once established.
Good in borders, mass plantings, large containers, water-wise gardens and as accent, contrast, screen and specimen.
