Blonde Ambition

Intriguing Blooms and Uniquely Colored Foliage
There is nothing about this new ornamental grass that is boring or predictable. This is a rugged, hardy plant that grows in an attractive form covered in delicate, blue green foliage and plenty of charming flowers. The fine, 1½-2" beige blooms have a whimsical shape and hang provocatively from the wiry, erect stems that wave gently in the summer breezes. We think they look a bit like the mustache prop in a photo booth! It's the perfect choice for adding style, texture and movement to areas next to walkways, focal points and even container gardens. Blonde Ambition does best in well-drained soil. It is drought tolerant, once established and makes a wonderful addition to any property that needs a bit of a pick-me-up. PP22048
