We think grasses are the ideal in­gre­di­ent to add an air of grace and ele­gance to any gar­den as the crescendo of sum­mer be­gins to die down. Grasses should be re­peated through bor­ders to break-up colour and pro­vide tex­tu­ral va­ri­ety. Ideal late-colour com­bi­na­tions would be with salvias, agas­taches and veron­i­cas­trums, or why not try the very rare Amor­pha canescens?

Our col­lec­tion in­cludes:

Mis­cant­hus nepalen­sis:

Very grace­ful and un­usual. Its mid-sum­mer flow­ers look like sil­ver wa­ter­falls. H: 1.2m (4ft).

Luzula nivea: Flow­ers are bril­liant-white. Pro­vides all-year colour from its ever­green leaves. H: 60cm (2ft). Carex os­hi­men­sis

‘Ever­green’: Drought-tol­er­ant, ever­green grass is great for adding to peren­nial pots or the front of a bor­der. H: 40cm (1¼ft).

Stipa gi­gan­tea AGM: Graced with large golden, oat-like, plume flow­ers through June-Au­gust, above ever­green fo­liage. H: 1.5m (5ft).

Carex tes­tacea:- Turn­ing bright yel­low and orange through­out win­ter, this weep­ing grass is ideal for mixed pots. H: 50cm (1¾ft).

Stipa tenuis­sima: Of­fer­ing a feath­ery ap­pear­ance, this lacy ad­di­tion has a vig­or­ous habit, which is ideal for fill­ing gaps in the bor­der. H: 60cm (2ft). *Sup­plied as young plants in 14 days.
