Ornamental Grasses collection
Coloured ornamental grasses have forged a way into modern gardens, as they are just so versatile. Holding their colour all year round, their range of shades blend perfectly with all year long flower displays. Great in mixed planters, tubs and pots, with Autumn and Winter bedding, or as a softer wispy addition to mixed borders, they have won their place in gardens on merit. Hardy, easy to grow, no maintenance and not fussy at all about soil types, they are a must for all gardens. This collection contains 2 plants each of: Festuca glauca ‘Blue Select’ – a neat clump forming grass to 30cm tall, its grey blue foliage turns almost azure sky blue in spring and summer, best colour in sun. Carex buchananii – tall, upright arcs of chocolate to rusty brown foliage, with a delicate swirl at the end of the hundreds of leaves. Great for autumnal planters. Ht 40cm Carex oshimensis ‘Evergold’ – a real tough beauty, the evergreen leaves are rich green, with golden edges down both sides. They form neat clumps, that cascade down, making them ideal in tubs and planters where they can trail. Ht to 20cm, spread 40cm.
