Comments: Commonly called Diamond Grass' for the way the morning light catches the dew and looks as if hundreds of diamonds are sparkling on the flower stems. Stately ornamental grass that will perform in full shade with a somewhat relaxed habit and will serve as a wonderful main focal point for the fall season. Diamond Grass is somewhat more upright when it is grown in full sun.
