Also known as Japanese Silver Grass, there are many selections now available, all providing a wonderful fall display of showy plumes, and remaining attractive all winter. This variety has large soft-pink flowers over an upright clump of green leaves, uniquely banded with yellow. The foliage dries and turns a light tan shade for the winter. Useful as a specimen, in the border, or for mass planting. Cut back to 4 inches in late winter or early spring. Clumps may be divided in spring before new growth appears.
