Product description

  • Position: full sun or light shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May-June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A tufted evergreen grass with purplish tinted, blue-green leaves. Throughout summer, locket-shaped, green-purple flowers, which fade to buff, hang from wiry branches. Their flowers are excellent for drying.

  • Garden care: Collect the seed before it disperses to use the following year. Dig out dead plants in early spring.

“Ideal in containers, but as happy studding a hot, dry, sunny border, planted with traditional herbaceous plants (look terrific with Hemerocallis); handy in large swathes as ground cover; super for growing on difficult dry banks or rock and gravel gardens, and naturalises well”
