Korean prefers partial shade but tolerates sun if water is provided. Bright green, slightly coarse blades develop into a 2 ft arching clump. Smoky lavender-red flower plumes emerge in late summer, reaching 3-4 ft, and fade to silvery-gray as the fountain of thin green foliage turns brilliant shades of bright gold when fall arrives. One of the few grasses that is happy in the shade. Great as an accent or planted in mass. Cut back in early spring before new growth begins.
Hardy to -30°F
