Description

One of the most useful of the taller grasses, valued for its flower and foliage effect. Plants form an upright clump of dark-green leaves, turning flame-orange and bronze in the autumn, particularly in warm regions. Tall spikes of very soft-pink flowers develop into silvery plumes that stay effective all winter long. Appreciates moist soil. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. Dead tops should be trimmed to the ground in late winter or early spring. Sometimes sold under the incorrect name ‘Autumn Red’.
