Tiny reddish flowers appear in tassel-like inflorescences which rise above the foliage clump in September, gradually turning into silvery plumes in fall as the seeds mature. Plumes persist well into winter providing good winter interest.
Prefers moist soil. Best in full sun. Cut foliage to the ground in late winter just before new shoots appear. May need staking to keep from flopping.
2015: Bought one plant from Bayside as a vertical element for the corner of the picket bed. Did pretty well, however, it did not bloom.
