Although it's a native grass, this easily-grown perennial is worthy of a place in any border when its large quaking seed heads erupt over the foliage in summer. When first open, the seed heads are green but they gradually take on golden shades as summer progresses and become almost animated when touched by a gentle summer breeze.
