A North American native grass that makes a good substitute for Miscanthus. 1-2′ foot plumes persist well into winter. This dramatic grass makes an excellent accent in mixed plantings, and a bold mass planting. A Southwest native that grows mainly in semi-desert habitats, and to a lesser extent in moist areas such as clay flats, floodplains, and desert lakes and marshes, it is drought, salt, and alkaline tolerant, and adaptable to many landscapes.
