This native grass forms loose tufts of upright, narrow-bladed, medium green leaves. 4 1/2' stems of attractive pale green, bottle-brush-like blooms flower in summer. These will mature to tan seeds and persist well into autumn.
Prefers light or partial shade, but will tolerate full shade. Will self-sow. Cut back to ground before new growth appears in spring. Native to the eastern half of North America.
