This beautiful, medium-height grass with narrow green foliage forms a dramatic, fountain-like 4' wide clump. Fountain grass has beautiful plumes that emerge in midsummer, resembling foxtails on sticks. The plumes, which are held just above the foliage, smother the plant, resulting in a show a gardener can't help but love...a wonderful accent plant!
