A tight upright (porcupine looking!) habit ; greater hardiness separate this neat 4-6' vertical accent with its bright-yellow banded foliage from Zebra grass; fluffy coppery flowers (to 8') add to the dramatic show. SUN/Med-Wet

Known as Porcupine grass for its stiff, upright, almost prickly habit. Blades are Zebra-striped like 'Zebrinus', but striping is more prominent. Blooms open red before drying to a soft buff. Grows to 9'.
