UNDAUNTED® Alpine Plume Grass
Achnatherum calamagrostis ‘PUND02S'
Alpine plume grass is a spectacular long-lived grass from high mountain meadows in central and southern Europe. A mature plant makes a dramatic specimen, with several dozen flower heads waving above a graceful fountain of fresh green foliage. The flowers persist from summer until the following spring when the entire plant should be cut back to make room for the new season's growth. Unlike many other ornamental grasses, the foliage doesn't die out in the clump's center over time.
