Ornamental grass collection
With free acidanthera bulbs, worth £14, when you buy the collection of 6!
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:
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).
