A resilient accent plant in perennial garden beds. Plants are bright green early in the season (June through July); in August–September, the spikelets transform to a beautiful copper color and the leaves turn to a contrasting lime green. Seed heads are 4–6" long, each producing multiple spikelets 3/4–1" long. Produces inflorescence (seed heads) in the first year from an early spring or late winter sowing, but plants will be short, about 12", and produce small clumps of flowering stems.

Pairs well with almost any color in arrangements, but especially creamy yellow, salmon, blush, and white. Holds well both fresh and dried. Native to the Eastern U.S. and Northern Mexico. Also known as Indian wood oats. Perennial in Zones 5–9. USDA Certified Organic. Ht. 24–36". Avg. 10,900 seeds/oz. Packet: 100 seeds.
