This grass dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Rate of Growth: average
  • Flowering period: August and September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A stunning, fountainous grass for a mixed or herbaceous border, this has narrow, silvery leaves with a white stripe down the centre. It flowers profusely and keeps on flowering right into autumn, when its new, reddish-brown, tassel-like flowers are a pretty foil for the faded, silvery older ones. Use it to add height to a perennial border, and to give winter presence.

  • Garden care: Protect from excessive winter wet. Cut down to the ground in late winter, before new foliage appears.
