Silk Grass

Silver-green, grass-like basal leaves that put forth an upright, branching flower stalk. Flowers are small and golden, about one inch across and multiple blooms occur on the branched stalk. The leaves are an eye-catching silvery color from a distance, as they are covered with very shiny, silky white hairs from whence this plant gets it's name. This is a tough, vigorous, drought tolerant plant that thrives in well-drained conditions.
