This striking ornamental grass seems to have two personalities. It spends the first half of the growing season as a rounded mound of wide, medium green cascading blades of grass. Once the need to bloom hits, flowering stems shoot skyward, more than doubling the height of the plant. These airy panicles dance in the wind. In autumn, the whole plant takes on a glowing golden orange hue before shedding its growth for the winter
