Quick Overview:

‘Little Kitten’ is a dwarf cultivar which typically forms a foliage clump to only 15″ tall of pointed, arching, narrow, green leaves. Showy, cascading flower plumes (silvery-white with pink or reddish tinges) appear in August on stalks rising well above the foliage to a height of 30″. Flowers give way to light beige seeds, with the continuing flower effect of the plumes lasting well into winter. Good fresh cut or dried flower.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist soil, but has some drought tolerance. Foliage should be left standing throughout the winter for visual interest and to provide winter protection for the crowns. Cut foliage back to the ground in the early spring just before the new leaf blades appear.
