Plant details

This clump-forming grass bears arching, silvery green leaves with a central white stripe. The plant flowers late, in August and September, when it sits well with vividly coloured perennials. The white flower heads turn from white to reddish brown, and the foliage is tinted deep bronze in autumn. Plants retain their structural presence throughout winter. Cut back stems before new growth appears in spring.
