Sorghastrum nutans GOLDEN SUNSET® ('MNYG318153' PP33776) (30)ct Flat
Common Name: Yellow Prairie Grass
A native selection with vertical landscape application comparable to Calamagrostis 'Karl Foerster'; however GOLDEN SUNSET® stands taller at 5-6' and flowers much later in the season. Wide leaves form a solid base with long golden seedheads rising above the plant in late summer. Wheat-like seedheads reach 10-12" in length and hold their form, adding winter interest.
