Description:

Andropogon eucomis is a very hardy, small upright growing grass with bright green foliage that is concentrated at the base of the plant.

The glistening white seed heads are borne at the tip of reddish stems from November to May.

This widespread grass is ornamental and easy to manage in the garden. Birds collect the seed heads for nesting material. Plant in pure stands or as part of a grassland garden.

It is also useful as a soil stabilizer. As with all grasses it should be cut back once a year and raked to remove the thatch.
