A woodland edge/clearing specialist this clump forming ornamental grass grows upright to 90cm topped with spikes of purple downward swept flowers in spring and summer.  The heads turn to lovely russet brown seeds that rustle in the breeze.  Hardy and easy in ordinary soil in sun or shade.  Self seeds a bit but doesn't usually make a nuisance of itself.
