|'Hameln' is a compact cultivar, and bears early-flowering greenish white spikelets, gray-brown when mature, in panicles to 5 inches long. Dark green leaves, to 6 inches long, turn golden yellow in the fall.
Great combination with coreopsis, black-eyed susan, autumn joy sedum and others. Can be used in a container. Needs some water, especially where summers are really hot. May need to be replanted where winters are really cold.
