Height: 12" foliage with 24" to 30" floral spikes
Spread: 10" to 24"
Flower color: Pink (insignificant)
Bloom time: Summer
Light: Full sun or part shade
Zone: 3-9

Other info: Plant is generally grown for its foliage which is a beautiful silvery grey. In my opinion, plants look better if bloom stalks are removed right away. The leaves (foliage) make a nice dried for flower arrangements as well as the bloom stalk in its early stages. Hang bloom stalks and leaves to dry, or lay leaves flat to dry.
