Cloud Nine Switch Grass is a tall fast-growing ornamental grass native to the prairies of North America.  The stiff upright medium green foliage turns yellow in fall.   In mid-summer stems holding airy clusters of tiny golden-yellow  flowers raise above the foliage like a cloud which turn brown in fall and persist through winter.  Prefers part sun and moist well-drained soils.
