    A statuesque grass that will extend the season of interest in a mixed border, this has fine, arching leaves with a distinctive white stripe down the centre. Its flowers are spectacular; reddish brown, silky feathers that rise upwards from their stems and glow in the evening light. This grass is quick to establish and turns a beautiful reddish-brown in autumn. Use it as a feature plant in a mixed or perennial border.

  • Garden care: Cut down to the ground in late winter before the new foliage appears.
