Spodiopogon sibiricus full sun  partial shade

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.

Blooms July–late October.

Size: 4' 0" high x 3' 0"–3-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
