Brilliant clumps of bright grey, fine foliage and arching stems of charcoal grey flowers all summer and into autumn. For a well drained soil in full sun, an ideal ornamental grass in a big container too. 75cm.

From  the southern USA so it may not be fully hardy in colder areas.  Drainage seems to be the key and it has survived at least -10oC here with well drained soil.  Move container grown plants to a sheltered location in winter.
