Pillar of Smoke
The species of this widely distributed genus of cool season grasses are evergreen in milder climates. All are clump forming and most relish well-drained soil and low humidity. Perfect for cut arrangements, the flowers shimmer in morning and end-of-the-day light, and in the breezes of any hour.
Hailing from Down Under, Australia’s ‘Pillar of Smoke’ explodes with 6 to 8 in. whorl-branched panicles of silky copper-colored flowers that age to a smoky silver. The amazing floral plumes are held on sturdy, jointed stems amidst towering clumps of bright green foliage.
Undaunted by wind, poor soils and some drought, this strong-growing, cool season evergreen is perfect for southern and western gardens, as well as coastal sites.
Size: 6' 0" – 7' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.
