Narrow linear leaves that are flat or rolled. Light green with bronze fall color mixed with a slight bluish tint.
Sparsely to many branched panicles of small flat inflorescences.
Late summer onward for winter interest.
Sunny locates are best but tolerates light shade.
Tolerates poor dry soils but does best in sandy moist soils.
Bright rose-red spikelets look as if they are glowing when backlit by a warm setting sun. Light green foliage turns a rich bronze color in fall with a slight bluish tint. Makes quite a show when planted en masse in an open meadow or a naturalized garden setting. Densely clumping and will slowly spread by rhizomes.
In late winter or early spring trim back before new growth starts.
Extremely drought tolerant grass.

Took off like a weed, with no "pampering" at all. The ONLY reason I didn't give it a 5 is because it isn't red yet, but will be on maturity. Easy plant.
