Diamond Grass

Stately Ornamental Grass

The name of this stunning ornamental comes from the way morning light catches the dew, creating hundreds of sparkling gems on the stems. It has a graceful upright habit in full sun, but it even performs well in full shade, growing up to 4 ft. high. Blooms from midsummer on, making a wonderful focal point for the fall season. Potted plants. Zones 4-10.
