Graybeard Grass

Native to Siberia, Mongolia, China, Korea and Japan, Graybeard Grass is another one of those ornamental grasses that looks it’s best when planted in areas that showcases its clumping format and deep burgundy flowers that evolve into a wheat coloured straw. It is tall and showy and provides that rare winter interest when left untrimmed.

Divide in the Spring or let it go to seed to produce more plants.
