This stately warm season perennial grass forms a clump of long, arching, green leaves with silver mid-ribs; feathery, fan-shaped, deep burgundy flowers age to a graceful silver and make impressive cut flowers; foliage turns a brilliant orange-red in fall; wonderful winter interest; deer resistant; drought tolerant once established.
Impressive cut flowers
Good in borders, containers, mass plantings and as a specimen, hedge and screen; excellent addition to water-wise gardens.
