    From spring to autumn the pale olive-green leaves of this ornamental grass turn a warm coppery-orange through the winter. In midsummer it bears small, brown flower spikes. Although it will take some shade, it colours up best in full sun. Grow it among other grasses or perennials, as a specimen plant, or in a large pot.

  • Garden care: Comb through the plant in winter to remove dead foliage
