at Digging Dog
The lush, bamboolike appearance of Siberian Graybeard brings echoes of Manchurian forests into your corner of the world.
Initially bright green, the 6 to 8 in. long flat leaves gently taper to a point, and splay in dramatic horizontal effect later in the season as rich plum red highlights appear. Rising over a foot above the neatly rounded, bushy profile, unusual 8 to 12 in. purple-blushed, open and erect panicles are napped with fine hairs—excellent light catchers in the afternoon sun.
Planted as a bold architectural specimen or grouped as a handsome screen, its upright habit and sumptuous fall coloration look pleasing with Aster ‘Ochtendgloren’ and Crocosmia ‘Harlequin’. Tending to mope in dry, hot weather, it will flourish in light shade and well drained soil.
Size: 4' 0" high x 3' 0"–3-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Spodiopogon sibiricus (G-0456)
