Narrow upright stems, with an open spreading crown, 2' to 3' tall.

The most notable feature of the flower is the awn, which resembles a feathery streamer trailing out of each floret. Some awns can be 10"-12" long.
Suitable for the perennial border and use as a dried flower.
No disease or insect problems.
