Like fiber optics in the garden! Quietly the stems grow, forming tiny flowers which then give way to the seeds and “explode” into a wondrous, shimmery panicle of marvel! Not a fussy plant, this ornamental grass is great in the garden or container to complement colorful blooms, but is most fabulous as a cut-flower bouquet filler. Excellent for drying as well.
