Posted by comeon 7 (My Page) on

I saw this grass at my local Lowes this weekend, they look down on people taking pictures in the store, so no picture. I am hoping my description will help.
It was a relativly thin and flat bladed grass that appeared to be coloring up for fall with a variagated appearance of blue, and pink along with a little green and brown. It looked so beautfull but was just tagged as random ornamental grass, and I don't like buying something with so little information about it.
Thanks for any help

Just a stab -- how about Anemanthele lessoniana ( "pheasant's-tail grass")?
I'm not sure if the popularity of this grass has yet extended to the big box stores. It wouldn't surprise me though.
