Huron Star Maiden Grass
New introduction developed in Ontario by grass expert Martin Quinn. Strong, upright habit. Vase-shaped. Narrow dark green blades have a white mid-rib. Flowers earlier than most varieties producing cream to tan feathery panicles in late summer and fall. Gorgeous fall foliage --- first becoming flushed with purple and then turning shades of red, orange and burgundy. As with the other 'Huron' grasses it is hardier and well suited for Canadian winters. HEIGHT: 160 cm - up to 250 cm with plumes SPREAD: 150-175 cm
A wonderful group of grasses. Tall, bold and imposing. Will produce a showy fountain of grassy foliage set with tall, highly ornamental flower plumes later in the season. Provides outstanding architecture and colour from late summer, right through the winter. One of the best winter-interest perennials. Easily grown in sun to part shade, in moist, well drained soil. Once established quite drought tolerant. Makes a great impact as an accent specimen or in a group.
