An upright ornamental grass that withstands adverse weather conditions. In summer, striking silvery blue stems form a columnar habit. Deep wine purple fall color. An excellent selection for mixing in a perennial border, prairie or in a more formal landscape design. Silvery blue blue foliage is held in a strong upright, columnar habit and in the fall the seeds attract many song birds.
This easy-to-grow grass does best in full sun and dry to average, well-drained soil. Tolerates heat and humidity well. Cut back in early winter.
