About This Plant
Sun/part shade. An outstanding fine-textured bunchgrass with ornamental seed plumes and silvery-grey foliage. Very hardy on limestone outcrops, in its native range, it is most often found near streams and drainages. Use it as a specimen or a screen in the home landscape. It is often cropped or crew-cut by landscape crews in late winter to clear out spent brown leaves (see photo) but it can be slow to recover. A far less obtrusive method of tidying it up is just to break off the dead leaves and comb through it with a rake.
No care required, though many landscape specimens are cropped in late winter.
