This native grass is grown for its oat-like spikelets that dangle from gracefully arching stems. Clump forming, thrives in a rich, moist soil. Flowering begins in midsummer with light green spikelets that change color to become reddish bronze and finally tan. Possibly reaches its most lovely stage on those bright, snow-dusted days.
