Comments: This is a very large, vigorously ornamental grass with broad, weeping foliage and feathery beige flower heads. This makes a good accent grass in the garden for most of the year. Cut back old foliage before new foliage emerges in the spring. Reported with be quite drought hardy and deer do not generally eat the foliage. Excellent for seashore conditions.
