Disappointing in its first year
from Golden CO
This was planted last Spring. While its roots grew there has been little top growth. This Spring it will be moved in an attempt to help it thrive.
SUCH A GORGEOUS PLANT! I was sad to lose it.
from North of Grants Pass, Oregon - Hugo
Unfortunately, the ground squirrels seemed to kill it at the end of summer. I'm still keeping an eye on it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just be careful...
By christie butterfly gal
from Arcadia, CA
I love this plant, plumes are spectacular and in winter they curl!I actually saw it in Union Square, NY first and called the maintenance people to find out what plant it was.My garden looked fabulous the plants took off in heavy clay soil... con: It spread and plants were popping up everywhere. I dug starters out for 3 years. Sadly I took them all out.

Small,but mighty plant
from Spokane Washington
After six month, the plant continues to grow, but is so small (3"x 3") I wonder how it will ever resemble the catalog picture.

This is another colorful grass that is still showing its copper hued flowers in early December. My poor draining, clay soil is not stopping it from flowering vigorously and even with the drought and very little water the plant is thriving. This is a very healthy plant that started growing immediately when planted and showed flowers within a few weeks.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
