Upright, clumping, grassy green foliage displays "see through" reddish-bronze plumes in summer which fade to tan by fall. Good winter interest. 2001 Perennial Plant of the Year.
Prefers sun to light shade and moist, well-drained soils. Can tolerate wet sites, some shade, and clay soil. Drought tolerant once established.
Very attractive when massed or used in smaller quantities.
