Erect, narrow, clump forming grass with bright green foliage. Loose open purplish flower/seed heads in June become narrow, upright buff plumes by mid August. One of the first grasses to bloom. Very versatile and attractive. Good for a hedge or in the back of a perennial bed. Unlike most grasses, does well in heavy clay soils and is able to grow in wet soils.
