Very attractive bunchgrass for moist areas. A beautiful grass for a dry floral arrangement. Especially pretty in the fall. Winter standout for strong stems and cinnamon color. White ball-shaped clusters of seeds over stiff, cinnamon colored winter stems. Tolerates poor drainage. Warm-season perennial. Provides wildlife cover.
