Giant sacaton (Sporobolus wrightii)

Giant Sacaton has a presence that brings to mind the exotic and fanciful with its arching foliage topped with showy plumes. 30-60 cm long plumes wave above its narrow blades, and the blooms persist well into winter. Giant Sacaton makes a dramatic specimen, an accent in mixed plantings, or a highly ornamental solution to erosion on a slope.
