They make stunning focal points, graceful borders or perfect complements to your other plantings. In late Summer this tough grass sends up light airy pink plumes. One of the most showy grasses for the landscape. Because of its tough nature it can be planted just about anywhere. It tolerates heat, humididty, drought and wet conditions. Forms neat clumps of narrow foliage in Spring and Summer, then in late Summer it becomes one of the most stunning plants around!
