AWESOME upright clump to 7' tall of bamboo-like stems that burst forth with dazzling tassels August > November….first white, then crimson, then back to white! Fabulous for fall color – this is a clumper and NOT a runner! A grand perennial and really cool specimen – sun to part shade, most soils, average water – Rare and choice!

Info

This introduction from the old Gulf Stream Nursery in Accomack Co., Virginia, was selected both for flower color and clumping habit. This selection does not run and take over the countryside like the horrible weedy species plant that threatens the Northeast. The upright clumps, to 7' on bamboo-like stalks, burst forth with dazzling tassels from late August to late November, first white, then fiery red, then back to white. This is a fabulous perennial for fall color and is also great for drying, which prevents garden seedlings--gotta have it!
