Tough and handsome native ornamental grass is especially useful in hot, dry areas. Narrow, fine-textured leaves form an arching, rounded mound, the leaves turning gold brushed with orange in fall, then tan in winter. Airy pinkish brown flowers rise well above the foliage in late summer, eventually dropping their mature seeds in late fall. Some say the flowers smell like popcorn with a hint of cilantro! Best in not-too-rich, sharply draining soil. Pairs well with Aster, Butterfly Weed (Asclepias) and Coneflower (Echinacea).


  • Mature Height: 18 inches
  • Mature Width: 24 inches
  • Spacing: 24 inches
  • Sunlight: Sun
  • Soil Conditions: Moist (Typical)


Early in the season, many plants are pruned to encourage later fullness, and therefore may vary in size from the photo and size range. Rest assured, they hold the same glorious potential.

We deliver outdoor plants within a zone around the Chicagoland.  As plants are perishable, we take care to deliver them by hand using our own vehicles.
  • Delivery zone includes the North Shore Suburbs North up to Winthrop Harbor and Wauconda; North Side of Chicago to downtown and Southwest to Oak Park. See here for a list of zip codes.
  • For plant material not planted by Chalet, there is a 1-year, 50% merchandise credit guarantee. 


  • To add Chalet's Planting Service, standard pricing is equal to the plants' retail price.  (minimum planting fee is $75) 
  • Fees do not include tree or stump removal.
  • Larger orders may require separate labor quote. Plantings carry a 1-year full guarantee. However, there is no guarantee for container or planter plantings as they are difficult to overwinter.
