In the summer, it puts up stunning flower and seed plumes that are golden in color and can reach 6 feet (1.8 m.) in height. The seeds are sterile, so there’s no danger of unwanted self-seeding and spreading. Its foliage is bright to light green, with borders that are white to cream colored.
It grows in a clumping pattern and looks especially nice in garden beds as a backdrop to flowering perennials where it provides interesting shades of green and white in the spring, and stunning height, texture, and color with its flower and seed stalks in the summer.
Foliage will stay through winter, but it should be cut back to the ground in late winter to make way for new spring growth.
