At 30-36" tall and wide, it will be a focal point in the garden, adding structure and vertical interest all season long. Its silver-tan foliage and elegant plumes pair beautifully with Salvia reptans, Salvia ‘Ultra Violet’, Agastache, Echinacea, and more - summer flowers look beautiful with ‘Girl Next Door.’ Growing upright at first, the leaves tend to arch as the season progresses, creating a lovely fountain effect.
