SKU: 8000000000004045 Category:


This grass is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its foliage in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose it all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

Position: full sun

Soil: moderately fertile, medium to light, well-drained soil

Rate of growth: fast-growing

Flowering period: June to September

Hardiness: fully hardy

Wonderful, wispy, pale yellow-green leaves topped with fluffy plumes of silver-green flowers, maturing to blonde-buff. This versatile semi-evergreen grass is ideal for a sunny gravel garden, large container or new perennial border. It’s perfect for introducing movement into a planting scheme since the fluffy flower heads and foliage billow in the slightest breeze.

Garden care: Wearing gloves, comb through the plant in early spring to remove dead foliage.

Eventual height 0.6m & spread 0.3m
