Description:
This clump-forming perennial grass is grown for its unusual infloresecenes. The flowers are born in branched panicles with flattened horizontally held, brownish-purple spikes, which resemble mosquitos. The gray-green linear leaves are up to 24 inches long; the plant has a spread of 12 inches. Suitable for a prairie or meadow garden, or in groups in a mixed or herbaceous border. Attracts birds and butterflies.

Cultivation:
Sow seed in containers in a cold frame in spring. Only just cover the seed. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when large enough to handle and grow on for the first winter under protection. Plant out in early summer. Grow in medium to light, well-drained soil in full sun. Where winter rainfall is high, provide sharply-drained soil. The plant is drought tolerant. Cut back the overwintered stems in early spring.
