Huron Sunrise Maiden Grass has masses of beautiful plumes of burgundy flowers rising above the foliage from late summer to early fall, which are most effective when planted in groupings. Its grassy leaves are green in colour with pointy silver spines. As an added bonus, the foliage turns a gorgeous tan in the fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The khaki (brownish-green) stems can be quite attractive.
