detailed seed-starting info below

Spiked flowerheads over loose clumps of bluish-green grass. Not the most spectacular ornamental grass, but does the job. In this third year in our garden, it's still growing into its potential.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
