Comments: This is a striking clump grass that produces tufts of long green leaves and long stemmed oat-like seed heads in late summer and autumn. It is often used as a specimen clump grass or massed in planting beds. Except for possibly late winter this grass makes a major impact in the garden throughout the year. Clip back unsightly foliage in late winter just before new growth begins. The stalks of seed heads are excellent for cutting and using in dried arrangements in the fall.
