Grass Chasmanthium latifolium
Clumping grass with green bamboo-like foliage and exquisite, flattened, oat-like spires that droop slightly and provide valuable winter interest. Salt tolerant, and excellent in dried or fresh arrangements. In early spring cut dead stems when new growth begins. Tawny and purple bloom appears between September and October.
Though late to emerge in spring, grasses create a striking vertical accent in the summer garden; their flowers add grace to the fall garden, and in winter, they add more interest than almost any other plant. There are many to choose from in our climate.
