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

    A tufted semi-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. Cut back tatty-looking foliage in spring.
