Handsome blades with dramatic green and white stripes stand out in any garden. This grass is upright in form until the flowers appear. Graceful, drooping blooms are replaced with clusters of sparkling white seed heads in late summer. Chasmanthium is a woodland, warm season grass. In fall the leaves turn to copper, then brown and, along with the clusters of flowers, persist through the winter for interest over a long season. Tolerant of some shade, coastal salt air and damp soils. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
Rich woods, along streams and rivers, and in flood plains.
