Features

notes
Most notable for its large panicles of fragile, purple spikelets in late summer, its delicacy belies its name. It is a heavy hitter, however, as its clumps of metallic blue grey leaves do not remain that colour, but turn beautifully yellow in autumn, providing colour and vertical interest to the border.
