A mound-forming, evergreen grass that?s particularly versatile, as itthrives in both sun and light shade and theflowers persist well into autumn.  Silvery, reddish-brown flower spikes appear from early to late summer above dense mounds of slender, arching, mid-green leaves. The feathery inflorescences of this elegant, ornamental grass mature to a soft golden yellow and shimmer like agolden cloud as it catches the light. Compact and easy-to-grow, it looks gorgeous spot-planted among perennials, ingroups towards the front of a border, or in a rock garden
Garden care: Remove the faded flowerheads in late winter before new growth appears. In warm areas the plant has a tendency to self-seed freely. Where this is the case remove unwanted seedlings as part of routine border maintenance
