Jerry Sortomme SBCC
A prominent tall native grass that usually does not make its way into traditional residential landscapes but can be used very effectively in a native or natural garden. Reaches heights of 6-8' in bloom and will clump to 4-5' wide. Requires supplemental water to remain green in the summer. Too much water will cause the grass to decline significantly. Can be pruned annually to promote new, more attractive growth.
