Silky, silvery-yellow flower plumes in late summer above large mounds of sharp-edged, mid-green leaves. 'Pumila' is a particularly compact and free-flowering variety of this much-maligned ornamental grass. We've chosen it as one of our recommended plants since it makes an excellent all-year focal-point for the smaller garden.Garden care: Protect the crowns of young plants during the first winter with a deep, dry mulch. Each year in late-winter or early-spring wearing stout gardening gloves remove the previous year's stems by cutting and combing.Goes well with: Euphorbia characias subspecies wulfenii 'Lambrook Gold', Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus', Phlomis russeliana, Veronicastrum virginicum f. album, Verbena bonariensis, Lychnis coronaria 'Alba'.
