Please select all options.

This is the quintessential grass of our valley moist prairies and wetlands. It's a lovely bunchgrass with mounding, soft-green leaves and tall, airy seed panicles that have a silvery sheen when young and turn tawny with age. Fine-leaved with a delicate appearance, it will add a soothing sense of motion to your garden bestowing a sense of serenity. This grass has a wide distribution and there are many ornamental cultivars available on the market - but this native stock originates here in the Willamette Valley so is well suited to our valley conditions.
