An ornamental grass grown not only for its value as a foliage plant but also the decorative pearly black seeds. Grow as a perennial grass in zones 9+ and an annual for colder regions. Tear-drop seeds accent slender, long ribbon shaped leaves adding a unique beauty to the landscape. Makes a good plant for the back of the flower bed or grow as a standard specimen anywhere. Upright stems grow to about 3-6 feet.
