    From spring to autumn the pale olive-green leaves of this ornamental grass turn a warm coppery-orange through the winter. In midsummer it bears small, brown flower spikes. Although it will take some shade, it colours up best in full sun.

    Made from lightweight frost and UV-resistant black plastic, the Vivo Square Structure features a rough hand-textured finish to give it an organic look reminiscent of natural stone.
    Hidden wheels built into the base make it easy to move around your home or garden even when fully planted up. The planter is supplied without drainage holes ready for use indoors; if using outside, drainage holes will need to be drilled in the base. Measurements: W40cm x D40cm x H41cm.

  • Garden care: Comb through the plant in winter to remove dead foliage
