Plant Details

An excellent specimen grass which will grow up to 6' tall. Long, satiny spires of red plumes appear in early summer, above foliage which emerges light green, turning bronze with age.

Excellent at the back of a border, with other grasses, or as a feature plant on its own.

Tolerates poor soils and is drought tolerant when established. Easy to grow.

Height: 150 - 180cm

 

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
